I really love the cherry blossom event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I still don’t like how they handle obtaining the recipes for the special furniture (I’m tired of hunting down balloons!), but I love the pink trees, floating blossoms, and of course the elusive special furniture items. While I didn’t get every recipe for every item, between everyone in the house that plays the game and myself I was able to get all of the items I wanted for my cherry blossom viewing area, including the pond stone, lantern, bonsai, and branches:
This has been one of my favorite events in the game, and I felt less pressure the second time around because I knew what to expect (and what not to get my hopes up about!), which made it even more fun!
I know I already shared some pictures of our evening stroll through the Japanese Garden at the Missouri Botanical Garden earlier in the week, but it was such a lovely experience, I just had to share a few more!
Last night, the Missouri Botanical Garden offered a somewhat rare opportunity…they had special evening hours to allow the community a chance to see some of their beautiful spring blooms, particularly the cherry blossoms in the Japanese Garden. Outside of special events, we don’t really get a chance to visit the Garden as the sun is going down, so it was a real treat to be there at that time of day, and the flowers were beautiful!
It was nice to see such a big crowd in attendance…I felt like I was getting a good idea of what it might be like for cherry blossom viewing in Japan, or at the very least, in Washington D.C.!
We’ve visited the Missouri Botanical Garden three times in the past week, and each time we went, we walked through the Japanese Garden. It’s been fun watching the cherry blossoms come to life, and see how green everything is getting!
