"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Flowering, Weeping Tree
Marquand Park, Princeton, NJ
© Gregory Hochman
These photos are from April 22, 2007. They were taken at Marquand Park in Princeton, New Jersey. The flowers are extra rich and full because New Jersey had a wet April. The wet weather was also accompanied by unseasonably cold temperatures, which caused the tree flowers to delay their blooms. But the patient trees persevered and exploded with color and scent when the weather warmed and precipitation ended.
The weekend of April 20th thru April 22, 2007 was a memorable one in which the flowering trees of New Jersey (and many other states along the East coast, I suspect) exploded with color, scent and beauty.
