Bloomin’ Brooklyn Heights

Early spring-like weather has been propitious for flowering plants, both in gardens and window boxes, around the Heights. The flowers in the photo at left are in front of the residence of garden designer Catherine Fitzsimmons on Joralemon Street between Hicks and Willow Place. More photos and text after the jump.

These pansies are blooming just across Joralemon from Ms. Fitzsimmons’ place.

While it’s not a flower, I couldn’t resist photographing this splendid example of ornamental kale on Remsen Street near Montague Terrace.

Here are forsythia, emblematic of early spring, on the Montague Street side of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church.

Daffodils, crocuses, and red berries brighten the scene at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade.

    I love that front door at 26 Remsen. I’m not a huge fan of ornamental kale but it looks nice in front of that doorway.
