Cherry Blossom & Townhouses

The cherry blossom tree contrasts very nicely with the old townhouses in the background. This photo was taken in the East Village near 3rd Avenue and 9th Street.

So how is your week so far?

Cherry blossoms are breathtakingly beautiful when in full bloom in the spring. I wish that their loveliness would last a bit longer though!

Nicely done, Ming.

That's a side of NY we don't get to see often enough.

Very pretty.

Re my NYC photos - we visited there a couple of times a few years back, so the photos are from then. When we go again I'll be in touch! :)

My "NYC fix" from this blog-and you NEVER disappoint. Great capture and to think we went to DC for the festival and didn't see blossoms like this.
