Photo A Day Challenge: Fence…

I like fences and the only difficult thing about this post was trying to limit the number of photos, not sure how well I did on that :). Here are a variety of fences from Martha’s Vineyard – Plymouth, MA – Cape May, NJ – Milford, PA.

 

One of the most touching fences to me is fire hydrant fence in the Newark Firemens section of the Mt Pleasant Cemetery in Newark, NJ where my great-great grandfather is buried.

Branch Brook Park is located in my hometown of Newark, NJ.   Branch Brook Park was created in 1895 making it the first county park in the nation.  It has the largest collection of cherry blossom trees in the world… more than Washington, DC and more than Japan.  The cherry trees were a gift donated in 1927 by Caroline Bamberger Fuld. BBP is 360 acres and has almost 5000 cherry trees.  The Cherry Blossom Festival runs for two weeks beginning April 6, 2019.

If you’re in the area go and enjoy the beauty of over 5,000 cherry trees in bloom 🙂

Photo A Day Challenge: Glass…

Shattered

I love glass, looking at or through it or touching it, I find beauty in all forms of glass, and so with that being said you’d think I’d be sharing pictures of beautiful glass things but I’m not.  I’m sharing a glass experience that even though shattering still had a beauty to it.

It was a quiet morning until it wasn’t.  There was a popping noise and a crackling sound!   Our sliding door went from…

                                                   this                                            to this

It actually was really pretty when the sun shone through it.

The glass people came, taped the glass door and moved it carefully to their truck.

As you can see the glass started to fall like sand in an hourglass.
