    This video of blooming BBG brings a needed message of hope and renewal. The fountains of waving weeping cherry tree tendrils decked in whites and soft pinks gracefully beckon us to a breath of peace in these stressful liminal times, between the now and the next.

    Truly miss visiting the Garden, lucky to have the afternoon sun & bird song coming through my window as I watched the video. Makes one truly value what we once took for granted. Looking forward to strolling in the Garden, hopefully soon.

    Nature is so beautiful. Seeing the turtle and the duck swim in the pond. Hearing the birds chipping just reminds us how much we miss nature and the smell of the beautiful cherry blossom and all the other flowers in between. I love visiting the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

    Even with Covid-19 ... it is a Botanic Garden ... can we find some solution keep it open? A garden open is good for NY residents health.

    This is very nice, the colors of the cherry blossoms are so beautiful. I love hearing the sound of the water. I can watch this video all day.
