Cherry Blossoms

Cherry trees will be blooming in Newark's Branch Brook Park for the next couple of weeks.

Named for a branch brook that flowed through the valley into the Passaic River, the stream that remains, and much of the surrounding landscape, still retain a natural appearance. More than 2,000 cherry trees that blossom during April are greater both in variety and number than the famed Washington, D.C., display—the result of a 1927 gift from the Bamberger and Mrs. Felix Fuld family. At its height the Cherry Blossom Festival attracts over 10,000 people a day.

More info on this year's Cherry Blossom Festival which runs April 13th-April 20th.

It's lovely! I'm loving the very graphic linework... in fact, your work has taken on a very strong graphic approach lately, but with otherwise very organic subjects. The contrast is pretty great.
