It Was Easel-y a Beautiful Day

I love it when artists set up their easels on the grounds of Skylands …


Monday was a beautiful day!

A little chilly, but sunny. I headed out to Skylands to check on the progress of CrabApple Lane. No crabapple blossoms yet—the buds were tightly closed.

And I'm sorry I lied to you when I said the cherry tree photos had come to an end. I guess I should have said the photos of Branch Brook Park had come to an end, because Skylands was just beginning.

I'm so sorry …

 I love walking around Skylands. It's peaceful, the birds are singing, and you never know just what you are going to see.

Sometimes I go for the exercise; sometimes just for taking photos.

Either way, it's always enjoyable.

Is it any wonder I keep going back again and again?

I’ve got a mountain biking date there later today… will have to be sure to zip through the gardens and see what’s blooming!

Magnificent photography of nature’s beauty ~ ^_^ Great place!

Stop apologizing!  How can anyone get tired of gorgeous views like those!  Love the photo of the gate and that gorgeous last tree.  It reminds me of an elegant woman walking down the aisle with a train trailing behind her.

Maggie, yes do!

Carol, thank you so much!

C, I just think most people are getting tired of cherry photos. Yes, it’s quite a tree!

Wonder file springtime photos. I am so glad spring is here!
