May Day brings a breath of blooming beauty

A warm and sunny May 1st gave me my first opportunity to enjoy and photograph healthy arrays of blossoms in the Schenectady Stockade — at this point, mostly white magnolias on trees and cherry blossoms on a few neighborhood trees that traditionally bloom first. I’m pleased to see healthy buds on other cherry blossom trees that will sure be popping within another day or two of sun and warm temperatures, as well as pink magnolias on the verge, plus some red bud trees about to burst.
