Early morning sunshine intensify the colors of this Japanese maple located in the Sunnyside Community Hospital courtyard (above). While it might appear to be autumn colors, the beautiful tree is only freshly leafed out, creating a calming vista for hospital patients. At left, the crisp white blossom of this dogwood tree offers a cheery greeting to early morning walkers in the South 16th Street area of Sunnyside. The tree usually blooms in April or early May, adding its color to the spring landscape.
