(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) Anyone who has been to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden knows that the emergence of cherry blossoms officially means the spring season is finally here.

Three weeks into March and they're starting to bloom, decorating the BBG and filling the area with a gradation of pink and white.

Throughout the cherry blossom viewing season, or Hanami, you can track the blossoms at the BBG using its CherryWatch feature, which is updated daily. Or you can simply take a stroll around Prospect Park and hope you get lucky.

The garden is currently open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
