Last weekend, thousands were expected to visit High Park to view the blooming cherry blossoms that only happen once a year usually around the end of April to the beginning of May. We had left the morning around 8am, arrived at High park at around 9am and secured a parking spot until we realized it was too chilly for the cherry blossoms to have even begun to bloom.
It wasn’t until around noon time when the first buds started to open and sprinkled across each branch would be a couple open flowers. We took a couple photos but it wasn’t much compared to the cherry blossoms we were hoping to see.
Flash forward to yesterday. On my walk to work, I noticed two huge cherry blossom trees in the middle of a cemetery – and to my surprise, not a person, or tourist group, in sight. The two trees were fully bloomed!
I made it my goal to see these trees up close on my lunch break and here are the shots that I got.
You can find these 2 stunning cherry blossoms in-between St Clair and Davisville station.
I hope you had the chance to see some before they’re gone for the year! Next time, I definitely want to go to Vancouver or Japan during cherry blossom season.
