Photo of the Day: Cherry Blossom Time

“The green catalpa tree has turned
All white; the cherry blooms once more.  
In one whole year I haven’t learned  
A blessed thing they pay you for.  
The blossoms snow down in my hair;  
The trees and I will soon be bare.”—Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet W.D. Snodgrass (1926–2009), “April Inventory,” from Selected Poems, 1957-1987 (1987)
I took the image accompanying this post nearly two weeks ago while walking in Overpeck County Park, not far from where I live in Bergen County, NJ.

By the way: Happy Earth Day.
