Every year, cherry blossom. Like a benediction every year.

Winterthur, Delaware in the last week of March and the first of April, 2022

Winterthur is the legacy of Henry Francis du Pont, 1860-1969, American

  1. What a magnificent gallery of nature’s delicate beauty and its bounty. Thank you so much for this photographic collection of cheer!

  2. Thank you for posting this absolutely gorgeous representation of the beautiful Cherry blossoms at Winterthur…your images convey all their subtle and delicate beauty. I love the closeup of the Sargent Cherry ( the last shot in that group). I feel like I went to a Sakura festival without the airfare. 🙂

    1. Thank you for commenting, Eileen!

      Where did you post your own photos?

      Best, Sarah

  3. Sarah, You give to us so much.
    Some of the cherry limbs seem synonymous with bold Arabic symbols.
    You bring to us The Exquisite. Your images heal. Thank you
