The tree pictured above is a majestic buckeye, one of many Central Park trees in full blossom.
This week we came across three stunning trees, notable for their blossoms. As we all know, blossoms do not last, hence the “immediate” in the headline.
These trees were not chosen in a scientific or arduous fashion. We came across them on a walk in the northern reaches of Central Park. We picked them for their proximity to Fifth Avenue, that is, the Upper East Side.
If you come across a good candidate for our list, please take a snap and send it to us at thiseastside.com. Blossoms not required.
Also notable is this Horse Chestnut, located just off East Meadow.
