For me, there is no better way to celebrate the spring! Cherry blossom season is one of my favorite things! The delightful blooms seen in my photos are from Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ. It is home to the Annual Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival. The cherry blossom display in Essex County’s Branch Brook Park is larger than the national display in Washington, DC and is the most diverse collection of cherry blossom varieties in the world. The 14 varieties of cherry blossom trees offer blooms that range in color from white to deep pink. It is an unforgettable spectacle that draws thousands of eager visitors every year.
The photos shown in this category are collected from visits to Branch Brook Park that span more than a decade. I never grow tired of seeing beautiful cherry blossoms! All photos are by Don Peterson.
Many of these cherry blossom photos are available as free high-resolution downloads suitable for printing and framing. These photos are for personal use only.
