Cherry blossoms are blooming again in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Until April 10, cherry-blossom petals will appear around Northern Hemisphere islands, giving you another chance to craft cherry blossom DIY recipes. Not only that, but a new slate of seasonal items are also available to order for a limited time.
Throughout cherry blossom season, you’ll be able to find cherry-blossom petals gently wafting around in the breeze. Catch these petals with your net and you can to use them to craft certain DIY recipes. There are 14 recipes to craft in total. If you missed out on any of these from last year, you’ll have another chance to learn them until cherry blossom season ends.

The Able Sisters’ shop is also selling prom-themed clothing this month, while Nook’s Cranny is selling a few brand-new Bunny Day items, like a Bunny Day tree and a candy set. These will only be on sale until April 4, when Bunny Day itself takes place this year, so pick them up while you can. Eggs are also appearing around your island in the days leading up to Bunny Day.
The new seasonal items were added as part of New Horizons’ 1.9.0 update, which also introduced Sanrio-inspired villagers and items. These are tied to the recently released Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo cards, but those sold out almost immediately at stores. Nintendo also recently rolled out an update for the NookLink companion service that introduced Nook Points. You’ll receive points for checking the app daily, and they can be redeemed for exclusive in-game items.
