Happy Mother (Nature)’s Day: Pink Sea, Pink Snow

by Ray Wright

Pink Sea. Pink Snow

The rites of spring are greener grass and trees with leafs and flowering blossoms.  Several years after my wife and I purchased our house, we planted two Quanson Cherry Trees between the sidewalk and curb in front of our First Avenue home.

The trees have grown and put out a tremendous number of flowers.  They are now at their peak.  When you look down our block from Broadway you see a sea of pink.  In several weeks, the flowers will fall and create several inches of pink snow.

If you have the spirit for a flowering tree, it will create a colorful spring and get prettier each year.

Ray Wright was the official photographer for Wright Brothers Real Estate, an agency that his father and uncle founded and that he ran for 40 years.  Ray’s photos are available for sale at Bee Alive, 19 North Broadway, Nyack, NY.
