The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has an entire section dedicated to blooming Japanese Cherry trees called the Cherry Walk, and they have just started to bloom for the Spring. It is the most highly anticipated event of the year at the Gardens, so the BBG has even setup a special webpage where you can track the blooming progress on their CherryWatch Blossom Status Map.

As of today, there are no trees which have started to bloom, but it is just around the corner! You still have a little bit of time to plan a visit and take a peek once they do. If you miss it for whatever reason, you can always watch this amazing time-lapse video created with snapshots from blooms in the past.

This time-lapse video was created from over 3,000 digital photos, one taken every three minutes from April 18 to April 26, 2008, of BBG's Cherry Walk.
