Sakura (Cherry Blossom) in Toronto’s High Park

You are about to see a lot of flowers.

I had been waiting for the Robarts Library cherry trees to start blooming. I always have to pass the trees on my way to the gym so I was thrilled last week when I saw the pink flowers almost about the open.

 I did not want to miss the famous cherry blossom at High Park this year and because I know it gets pretty crowded during the day I headed west towards the park around 5 pm.

The light was perfect when I got there. Torontonians of all ages had their cameras out, taking pictures from every possible angle. I include myself in the bunch. Here are a few of the photos I took with my phone. Run if you can make it there today or tomorrow, it is truly beautiful.

These Japanese trees were planted in 1984 and were a special gift to the people of Toronto from Yoriki and Midori Iwasaki.
