Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with beauty in April on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania as afternoon traffic flows by 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.

“…I’ll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin’ for you
In the cold Kentucky rain …”

“In the spring, at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.”

I spotted this pink bicycle left near a tree at the Springhouse of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania as sunset knocked on the door of a picturesque April day. No doubt the bike’s owner was off exploring the beauty of the outdoors … in the pink of spring.
The log cabin close to the bicycle was part of Springhouse, the summer home of General Harry C. Trexler (1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire in Allentown. The park is his namesake.
