The Cherry Blossums of Fairmount Park

By Michele Koskinen

The Cherry Blossums and Magnolias are out in full force in Fairmount Park. It was a spectalular day and time to get my photos before the coming rain. Over the years the Japan America Society has planted a variety of trees. This link will give you information on those in Fairmount Park.

We visited the revised park around the Rodin Museum, the Art Museum area where they are redoing the step area and of course the alley of beautiful trees behind the Horticulture Center.  I can't wait to play. Below is my photo journal of the day. If you have time you should visit. The magnolia's however already are dropping like snowfall.

The Cherry Blossum Festival starts this week and there are many events. It is always a great way to enjoy the Japanese culture.
