It may seem odd to say one has a special relationship with a tree but this cherry tree that stands in lot sized park on Driggs Avenue has been a friend of sorts for many years.
I have walked past it endless times over the years and photographed it many times. I have looked forward to seeing it bloom in Spring and it has lifted my spirits many days when things could have been easier.
The photos never seem to capture the full splendor of this tiny tree that explodes with blossoms and offers so much beauty to an otherwise ordinary Brooklyn corner.
I took this shot yesterday on a quick visit to what will soon officially be my former neighborhood. It was past the height of it's blossoming but still beautiful.
