The Cherry Tree



When I drove by the first time the pasture was filled with black cows.



I was hoping for that Black Cow Cherry shot on the way back.

I want one of those in my front yard! I can see some black cows to the right of the second picture lying in the background. It would have made a beautiful picture, but the tree itself is beautiful! Where is this charming country road?

Absolutely stunning.

Siria this right on 209 just past Ducketts and River Road. It is off of a leftover curve of old 209 from when they "staightened" the highway. There were about 40 black cows in the pasture on the right when I first went by.

Beautiful! Wow.

Your daffodils are also pretty incredible - especially the images of a 'hill' filled with daffodils....

It would be hard to see a more perfect picture even with the black cows.

Hi Christopher, what a shot! What is happening with the large trees in the background? Is it frost, dew, budding? The color is so intense, the black cows would have been unbelievable. Maybe another time. That is one gorgeous scene.

Next time those black cows are there I'm stopping. Someone in France even googled the phrase cherry tree cow.

Frances it has been raining which makes the wet trunks of the trees look much darker against the smaller twigs and branches. Plus the tree tops do hold moisture quite a bit.
