Cherry Hill Fountain

This is the Cherry Hill Fountain on the west side of Central Park near Strawberry Field. The buildings in the background are mostly apartment buildings on Central Park West. The flowers in the background are cherry blossom, I think.

So do you have cherry blossoms in your city?

pas beaucoup de cerisiers sur Evry, mais c'est vrai qu'il y en a de superbe dans Central-Park et cette fontaine est très belle.
not many cherries in Evry, but it is true that there are some superb in Central Park and the fountain is very beautiful.

Yes, aren't they gorgeous? My dad was the one who pointed them out to me when he visited last year. Strange how I'd never noticed them.

I'd always known that they were all over DC, but I'd had no idea they were here in my own backyard as well!

Are those lamps on top of the fountain? Whatever, I think this is beautiful!

No, no cherry trees whatsoever. I don't think they can survive our heat.

None in ours and no fountains that are close to this.

I knew it, Ming! I drop in and find a coffee cup just one shot back and a DUMPLING TRUCK only a couple more down! So...I wasn't disappointed. Same old Ming!

Lots and lots of these line the streets between Amsterdam and Columbus in the 70s ...

I had no idea there were two fountains in CP .. I thought Bethesda was the only one .. now I must go see this one for myself.

Oh this fountain is making me think Paris. What's new!!! We have blooming trees and shrubs all over Birmingham. It's a beautiful city in the spring. Well I"m thinking NYC is pretty gorgeous as well.
