Tuesday Photo Challenge: Age…

My choice for age is going back in time to a different one, one where my ancestors came from, the 17th century and the age of the pilgrims.  These pictures were taken at PLIMOTH PLANTATION in Massachusetts.

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 7 – 15, 2018.

Some of the cherry trees are along Second River which forms the border between Newark and Belleville.
