SATURDAY: Blossom Sketching

Visit Brooklyn's Botanic Garden 
during cherry blossom season 
and witness an exuberant display 
that changes day by day.  

It's easy to forget from year to year just how stunning this display is 
and what a treasure it is to sketch.

Watch this wonderful video to be reminded.
