I have been fond of cherry trees since before I can remember. Two childhood memories may be the cause of this: countless games of Hi-Ho Cherrio! (remember that game?!), and the cherry tree outside my childhood house that each year let me know when spring had arrived. I have been endlessly hearing about the Brooklyn Botanical Garden's Cherry Tree collection. Today I found out that it's the largest collection of cherry trees outside of Japan! And that, it has become so popular that L'Occitane (the renowned beauty and skin care company) has partnered with the garden and is launching a limited edition line of cherry blossom inspired products. I can not wait to get out there!
