Pink Canopy

3/31/20 Crown Hill neighborhood

Dibble Avenue Northwest in Crown Hill is on my checklist of places I go cherry blossom peeping each spring. Imagining that the trees were at peak, I was very sad that I might miss them this year. Then last week I saw David Hingtgen’s sketch of them, and I could resist no longer. The next day I had to go pick up a prescription at the pharmacy anyway (that’s considered an “essential” activity; I felt no guilt going out), so I made a roundabout detour in the opposite direction to Crown Hill first. Safely sequestered in my car, I marveled at the pink canopy overhead. The trees shook their blossoms in the wind, oblivious to everything, and for a moment, so was I.


  1. This just makes me could anyone resist that canopy of pink? The NYC Urban Sketchers have a theme for the week and it is cherry blossoms. I'll have to go out tomorrow and see if I can find some.

    1. Hunting for and sketching cherry trees has definitely cheered me up this week! Good luck, Joan... looking forward to seeing what you find.

    1. Thanks! One more cherry blossom sketch coming up... then I'm probably done for the season. It's been especially bittersweet this year.
