I was a bit worried as Hurricane Irene took down some of our most colorful varieties. Our beloved Sakura trees braved the storm with nothing but a good trimming. This tree was felled by another, it color will be missed this year, but a newly planted maple sits in it place.
Domino Theory: The tree on the right fell on this colorful gem during Hurricane (tropical storm) Irene.
This past week has sent the Cherry Trees on Hughes Place into their second colorful stage. Sometimes red, sometimes orange, sometimes yellow. Why? I have no idea other than to surprise us with beautiful Fall "Blossoms". Some have come and already faded away...
This one is Redellowrange!
Colors change hourly!
Fleetingly Fickle, see you in the spring!
All is not faded and gone in Wooster Square yet. In fact, today and tomorrow before another storm visits us will be the perfect time to enjoy the park. And get this! The original Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be played in the Park with food and seating available. Life is good in Wooster Square! Come join us! The Square is reaching full color!
If you can't, of course I have the (Bl)awesome responsibility on documenting Wooster Square in all its seasons and splendor!
In fact, the Wooster Square Blossom Blog is the World's first (to perhaps put these words together) Photoblogumentary.
Let's take a stroll through the Wooster Square and see what the fall of 2012 is all about!
Pie in waiting or a scary jack o lantern to be!
