High Park Cherry Blossoms

This week marks the time of the year when the Cherry Blossom Trees are in bloom in High Park in Toronto. This much anticipated event only lasts a couple of weeks so I decided this morning to check it out.

The main grove along the hillside gardens by Grenadier Cafe was already beginning to shed its petals and at one point when the wind picked up it looked like it was snowing.

Down by the duck pond there was a smaller patch of trees whose blossoms were at their peak. A fully attired bride and groom were having their pictures taken among the trees taking full advantage of this spectacular site though I highly doubt their big day was today; a Tuesday.

Over 600, 000 people attend the Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, D.C each year that includes the Blossom Cam, a web cam that keeps everyone up-to-date on the state of their trees. Maybe Toronto should think about something similar so more people could enjoy this wonderful time of the year.
