It's great to be back!

The unusually warm weather -- it was over 70 degrees Fahrenheit for several days in New Jersey last week -- encouraged the cherry blossoms in Branch Brook Park to start blossoming early. Branch Brook Park, split between Newark and Belleville, NJ,  actually has more cherry trees than Washington, D.C.! 


Not all of the trees are in bloom yet, but the ones that are blooming are beautiful! Some of the trees have not only beautiful cherry blossoms, but incredibly artistic trunks and branches. I took these photos yesterday (Monday) -- a wild, windy day, but the photographers and artists were out trying to capture the beauty of the cherry blossoms.

  1. In Cherry Hill, NJ you can see a two mile avenue of continuous rows of cherry trees! It is a spectacular display of cherry blossoms for all to enjoy!
