pink trees

it has been so amazing watching jersey city come to life this spring. there are so many beautifully flowering trees and plants in our neighborhood - magnolias, pussywillows, eastern redbud, dogwood (a spectacular white one in our backyard), callery pear, crabapple, linden, sweetgum and oak... and many more. but by far, my favorite are the wonderful kanzan cherry trees, which are found in abundance around here:

although the canopy of blossoms only lasts for a couple weeks at the most, the way the petals cover the ground when they fall is almost just as enjoyable. it's like having snow in springtime, only pink!! :)
