A surprising place to find flowers… which were in Ocean Park on Martha’s Vineyard, the park in my header picture.
The prompt is : This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape, or take the theme in a different direction, from a crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.
I was going to try and stay away from fog, trees, flowers, food, cities but you know what, that’s where all the density seems to be. So from boats in a dense fog, to a house covered in lilacs, to the skyline of New York City, to chocolate cake and candy, to the dense colors of freshly spun yarn, and to the density of a sunflower, , here are my choices.

Newark, New Jersey
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 April 9 – 24, 2016. The Bloomfest is Sunday, April 24th… during which time the cherry blossoms should be at their peak
Some of the cherry trees are along Second River which forms the border between Newark and Belleville.
