A gentle rain didn't prevent Brooklynites from standing on line, in appropriate social distance style, for the reopening of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on Friday.
Here's what gardeners in Gowanus, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights and East New York have been up to, in their own words.
What have you been doing in the garden during lockdown?
We have spent morning, day and night in the backyard ever since we finished.
We have already planned our space, built our hardscaping, and now we are finally ready to put in the plantings.
We want our backyard to be dog friendly, with great relaxing and entertaining space and beautiful plantings that are easy to maintain.
Greenery brightens up a home any time of year, and at holiday time, a garden-inspired gift is a reminder of spring.
The event, hosted by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, is an attempt to bring communities together to make Brooklyn a cleaner, greener place.
The work is from a Red Hook-based landscape design firm, Future Green, that specializes in creating green spaces in urban environments.
