Brooklyn Spring

I definitely had a moment at Brookly Botanical the other day. It had everything to do with timing. I've been here before in spring, but earlier when the magnolia buds are swollen or later when the lilacs or cherries are in mad gaudy bloom. This time, I enjoyed something new - softer, lighter. Just a few Magnolia trees were in flower, as I walked around them I enjoyed their fragrance which I found surprisingly delicate. In the distance, I see one tree in bloom, I have to walk to find another. It's always such a mad rush it seems in spring, this felt slower, sweeter - spring landing softly in Brooklyn.
