Get on over to Chapel Avenue ASAP or you'll miss them. They don't stay around very long -- especially with high winds in the offing. And, trust me, you don't want to miss this!
Along a dazzling two mile stretch from Haddonfield Road to Kings Highway the blossoms create bright ribbons of pink. Through the day the color varies slightly as the sun and the clouds help to create a feast for the eyes. And the blossoms vary somewhat by shading and color depending upon whether you are moving east or west along Chapel Avenue.
Walking under the blossoms along the sidewalk on either side of the street is a sensual delight.
But this incredible show only lasts for a week or two so you must hurry if you want to see some of the most magnificent clustered blossoms anywhere. The blossoms were the brainchild of Joe Zanghi, a visionary Cherry Hill resident who began planting them (along with dozens of volunteers, most notably Cherry Hill firefighters) decades ago. They are a true labor of love by public-spirited citizens -- a gift to the entire community and the region. These are huge, fancy, clustered blossoms.
Drive slowly, cycle or walk under the blossoms and soak up every magical moment!
