Spring Blooms in CNY

Spring blooms around CNY are a sure sign of spring even if the temperatures aren't on par. It’s true that April showers brings May flowers as well as the greenest grass around. Soak in the beauty with these blooms even if that means putting on a jacket too.
Walk down the tree-lined streets of Franklin Square where the trees have finally blossomed. Colors of pink and white transform this already beautiful area into a favorite spot during the spring time. Once an industrial neighborhood is now one of the most peaceful spots downtown. Grab an iced latte at Freedom of Espresso and sit amongst the blooming trees.
With only a dozen of these trees in existence, the Tree of 40 Fruit is located on the Syracuse University campus. Tree number 75, in particular. As a professor at Syracuse University, Sam Van Aken, created this hybridized tree by implementing the technique of grafting. Growing on the tree are, you guessed it, over 40 types of fruits. The next closest tree is in Pound Ridge, NY so headed up to SU a catch a glimpse of this rarity in person.
Sycamore Hill Gardens
Located right outside of the quaint Village of Marcellus lays 40 acres of diverse landscape. From trees, shrubs, perennials and flowers to rolling green grass and koi ponds, this is a place for serenity. While Sycamore kicks of the season with their ever popular Mother’s Day event, we encourage you to bask in the beauty of these gardens all spring (and summer) long.
