This time-lapse was created by Dave Allen, BBG's Web Manager, from over 3,000 digital photos, one taken every 3 minutes from April 18 to April 26, 2008, of Brooklyn Botanic Garden's famed Cherry Walk. The music is by Jon Solo, a Brooklyn-based musician and producer.
The Cherry Esplanade of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a broad green field bordered by two allées of cherry trees (Prunus'Kanzan). This year, the double-flowering cherries bloomed earlier than usual. The images were taken yesterday. The cherry blossoms are a centerpiece of the Garden’s annual cherry blossom festival to be held at the end of the month.
