The Lens: Capturing Life and Events at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a photography series devoted to documenting moments big and small that unfold at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The View: On the first day of spring, the budding Callery pear tree known as the Survivor Tree shows signs that it is preparing to bloom. This tree, which was rescued from the debris at ground zero, is the only one of the 416 trees on the 9/11 Memorial that blossoms annually—the swamp white oak trees do not.
