A Taste Of Spring In February: Carroll Gardens Begins To Bloom

Of course, we all know that there is something quite unsettling about 60 degree weather in February, but it sure feels good walking around without a heavy coat.  The warmer temperature of the past few days has coaxed daffodils, crocii and snowdrops out of the ground here in Carroll Gardens. Witch hazel is in bloom, magnolias, roses and hydrangeas are budding, and a cherry tree in a form yard in Boerum Hill was in flower.
It will probably get colder again before the official start of spring, but for now, it  makes sense to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
How are you enjoying this sunny long week-end?

Here in California I have also just seen hints of spring and a flowering cherry blossom tree! Always my favorite time of year...spring around the corner! xoxo

This is what I am missing since I moved to Riverdale. I always looked for the signs of Spring in my favorite gardens and trees. I really enjoy keeping an eye on the neighborhood through your photos and stories.

That is very sweet, Ellen. Glad to be able to bring you a bit of Brooklyn.
