Cherry Blossom Festival in Newark, New Jersey (these photos are from 2018, the festival this year is April 6, 2019)
Branch Brook Park is located in my hometown of Newark, NJ. Branch Brook Park was created in 1895 making it the first county park in the nation. It has the largest collection of cherry blossom trees in the world… more than Washington, DC and more than Japan. The cherry trees were a gift donated in 1927 by Caroline Bamberger Fuld. BBP is 360 acres and has almost 5000 cherry trees. The Cherry Blossom Festival runs for two weeks beginning April 6, 2019.
If you’re in the area go and enjoy the beauty of over 5,000 cherry trees in bloom

The hugging trees.
For many years we would walk in this nearby park and always called these two trees the hugging trees.
Unfortunately when we went to the park during the harsh winter of 2010 we found that sadly the hugging trees had not survived.
Strangely comforting though that they were still together.
