I've been lucky enough to live in cities where cherry blossoms are in full bloom this time of year. When I lived in New York City there were a few blossom trees tucked away on little streets, but each year I would still make a trip out to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to see rows upon rows of cherry blossoms blooming. It was one of my favorite Spring traditions.
Now living in San Francisco, the city is covered in pastel pink blooms, every walk outside really feels like a dream. My new cherry blossom tradition here is to take a day trip to the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park to enjoy the blooms with a cup of tea and a slice of green tea cheese cake. My favorite part is when a little gust of wind comes along blowing pink petals everywhere, just like a cherry blossom snow globe.
