For the past 2 years I’ve missed out on seeing the Cherry Blossoms at High Park. I’ve either found out about the blossoms too late, or have been working. Because retail knows no days off.
And this year I was afraid I would miss out again since I will be in Italy around the time the trees usually bloom – Must say, it’s a pretty fair trade though.
Luckily enough, the cherry blossoms came early this year and I was able to catch it this past weekend! Good thing too, because it’s been rainy and gloomy the past few days so I was able to go on clear skies.
I asked bae to take me because I thought it would be a nice little day date. Taking a walk in the park and snapping some photos. Plus, I had been waiting for the perfect moment to wear my Air Max 1 Print sneakers this season.
And this was definitely the perfect time.
I literally had to lay on the ground and kick my feet in the air, but hey! Anything to get the perfect shot, right?
If you’re thinking of going next year, I would suggest going during the early hours of the morning to avoid crowds. We got there in the late afternoon around 5pm. Had to drive around for a while to look for parking because the entrance we tried to go through was blocked off. Perhaps the lots were at full capacity? Didn’t mind so much though because we were finishing the first chapter of the S-Town podcast… because Ellen suggested to give it a listen. So we had to, duh!
I was super excited to see the Cherry Blossoms that day. I’m starting to love and admire flowers a lot, so I believe it’s most definitely worth the trek.
A tree of pure florals? And they’re pink?!
Such gorgeous blooms though. For sure, my future garden goals.
You win nature.
