Brooklyn's official shrub announces Spring.

Since 1940 when then Borough Commissioner, John Cashmore proclaimed...The Forsythia in all it's flamboyant glory... Brooklyn's official flower, reflected in the shadows... The Lullwater below the Terrace Bridge, Prospect Park.

Jackie Robinson with Brooklyn Borough President John Cashmore at Ebbets Field in 1947. Cashmore's ill fated "47 Forsythia Day" uniforms.
