. . . “May Peace Prevail on Earth” . . .
This year’s CGOH cherry blossom crop was fading but still glorious when I stopped by last Saturday and took advantage of the bright late-afternoon sunshine. It was a special treat for someone who loves both cherry blossoms and gnarled tree limbs. I walked over there with my friend Yu Chang, who lives near Central Park. Yu, a Union College engineering professor and much-honored haiku poet, started my photography hobby three years ago when he gave me a fine hand-me-down digital camera.
The slideshow below has over a dozen photos from the grounds of Congregation Gates of Heaven. Unfortunately, without a miracle there will be no blossoms for the 19th Annual Cherry Blossom Crafts Festival and 5K Race for ALS, on Sunday May 15, rain or shine from 10 AM to 3 PM. Stop by anyway, for the grand trees, plus “Great Refreshments, 50 crafters, Free Admission, Games for Kids.”
