              ~ Napolean Bonaparte
                     ~ 1769-1821

Spring With A Cherry On Top ...



“Came the spring with all its splendor,
All its birds and blossoms,
All its flowers and leaves and grasses.”
                   ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
                                ~ 1807-1882
An artistic view of delightful cherry blossoms that top off an April afternoon with the spirit of spring on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, where Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with splendor with their beautiful but fleeting pink canvas.

There are 46 Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees in the vicinity. The original trees date to the late 1950s and early 1960s.
