Ron took us on a field trip yesterday!!!! (Of course it was work related!) Ron, the staff, the interns and myself all took a little trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for the cherry blossom festival.
(For those of you who live in NYC – it’s free on Tuesdays!) The reason for the visit? Research.
When the staff makes all the flowers, they try to get them to look as natural as possible. The curl of the petal, the coloring, stamens etc…
So of course it being spring, we get a lot of requests for this beautiful little blossom to be on a cake. It was a treat, we all stood under a canopy of cherry blossoms admiring their beauty and taking notes on nature.
We did tour the rest of the gardens and looked at other flowers too.
It was a nice distraction from the work day….
And our research did not go to waste…here is Jason tying our version of cherry blossoms for a wedding cake this weekend.
