Weeping Cherry silhouette
Today's weather was wild and woolly. Rain in the morning, sunshine midday, and a few cold showers just as I was going home. Sustained winds of 20-30 mph were interrupted by the occasional gust to 45 mph. When the overcast broke up mid-morning, the remaining clouds raced across the sky at a frightening speed. 61F is not only unseasonable for 6:00 in the morning in January, its warmer than it's been for....months? And it got warmer and warmer till mid-afternoon when the clouds darkened and huge ice-cold raindrops fell in bursts of a minute or two between long dry stretches. Odd day.
This Cherry is right on the road from the Administration Building to the Gotelli Collection. You come upon it as you move from an open meadow to Gotelli.
