cherry blossom sky

Cherry-Blossom-Sky-at-Nassau-County-Museum-of-Art



























here is where I photographed the cherry blossoms from yesterday's post, at the nassau county museum of art. the grounds are fun for kids to run and play with lots of interesting outdoor sculpture to discover around every corner.
if you'd like to see more skies from all around the world or if you'd like to add your own sky, please visit skywatch friday, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, fishing guy, and sylvia.

for more cherry blossoms, please go here and here.

Seductive blossoms,
you will never bear sweet fruit—
all you do is flaunt.

Space Needle piercing the sky!

One of these years I'd like to be back east for the cherry blossom time. This is a great capture, I like the environmental setting, and the angles you picked. Nice!

Hey,

It seems like you have a lot of reach in the Long Island area and I wanted to let you know of a contest we're currently holding for the school districts.

BlueWater and Cisco have teamed up to offer a wireless makeover to one deserving school district. If they can tell us in 500 words or less how they would use mobility technology to unplug their school – they’ll have the chance to win a wireless makeover worth up to $35,000!

They just need to visit http://www.winwithbluewater.com to enter the challenge!

We'd love it if you could help in any way possible - even by just mentioning it in your blog.

Thanks so much and keep up the great work!

what a lovely garden? I am always astounded when I see all trees blooming at the same time. I wonder how they orchestrate that.

Hope you had a lovely weekend, Lily. Here's to the week ahead!
