Today’s news:

Spring 2008 is busting out all over

Get up close and personal with the queen of green.

Springtime’s here and what better place to feast your eyes upon her heart-stopping hues than at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Mother Nature’s majesty is in full bloom at the emerald empire where bursts of buds and blossoms vie for attention with an explosion of flowers and trees, providing a bounteous backdrop for nature lovers to soak in the iridescent sea of color bathing every fold and furrow of the borough’s premier hothouse, 1000 Washington Avenue.

Garden hours are: Tuesday-Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; weekends and holidays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; closed Monday (but open holiday Mondays).
