Cherry Blossoms in Branch Brook Park | Newark, New Jersey

April 29, 2015

The cherry blossoms in Branch Brook Park have been a bit slow in blooming this year, due to the very cold and harsh winter we had.

The dark pink ones have been reluctant to bloom, but some of the others are near or getting past their peak bloom.

Hopefully, the dark pink ones will bloom soon.

These photos were taken on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.

  6. I tell people about the cell phone towers along the Garden State Parkway that they tried to disguise as trees. I haven't been back to Jersey in a while, but I assume they're still there. Have you ever taken a picture?

    1. There have been plenty of visitors, although not that many near the cathedral. They tend to go near the cherry blossom welcome center.
