Or Cherry+Therapy = Cherrapy! Yesterday I drove down to Branch Brook Park in Bloomfield. The cherry trees were at their peak and the day was perfect for drinking in their sweet blossoms. Rather than overload an entry with multiple photos I chose to show my favorites one at a time. Then I'll put you into cherry tree overload.

Branch Brook has over 4,000 cherry trees; the largest collection of Japanese flowering trees in one location in the United States. Not what you expect in a suburb of Newark, New Jersey, right?

Be sure to come back for more Cherrapy in the next few days!

Beautiful photo for Rurality ~ dazzling Spring time colors ~ Wonderful! ^_^

Beautiful picture.  Great capture of pretty spring colors.

Good to know…. maybe we’ll take a run down this weekend, although I expect the place will be mobbed as Sunday is the Cherry Blossem festival.  Perhaps I should just sit back and enjoy your photo’s instead.  ~wink

I think everybody could use a little cherrapy right about now!!  Love the mourning dove photo!

Beautiful shot!
Would LOVE to see that in person.
I like your ‘cherrapy’

Beautiful trees. I have neer seen a cherry tree in bloom.  Thanks for the photo.

Oh wow.  I have always wanted to see the cherry trees in person.  So pretty.  We are having winter here.

Interesting! I never heard of Branch Brook Park when I lived in New Jersey. Too bad—I would like to have seen this spectacle!
