High Park Cherry Blossoms Not Yet Bloomed

CalendarThis past week, I've seen more and more people visiting this blog after searching Google for information on the cherry blossoms in High Park. I rank highly for such searches thanks to this entry in 2008 and this guide to finding High Park's best cherry blossoms I wrote last spring.

I was in High Park this afternoon, and I'm here to tell you it's still too early. The cherry blossoms have not yet bloomed. If you visit High Park today, this is what you'll see.

If you visit in a couple of weeks, this is what you'll see.

Hey everyone I dropped in today. The blossoms have emerged, but they're still in their infancy, that is, kind of small, and a day or two from full bloom.

Thanks Mike. My wife and I were just discussing whether we should make a trip to High Park tomorrow. We will postpone our trip until Friday April 16 then. Many thanks

They're starting to bloom... but it's still too early.

Any updates? I'm thinking of going there early next week.

Early next week might be perfect. They're starting to bloom, just not quite ready.

And they'll rock hard for a week after full bloom... and still be pretty cool into early May.

I understand they're budding now...

I expect them to be ready for cameras next week.

The cherry blossoms are not yet in bloom.

I'm planning to go next weekend myself, so I'll be checking in on them before then. I'll post here by Friday.

Still haven't bloomed... doesn't look like this is the weekend to see them. :-(

Looks like they will bloom late next week.

Next weekend, the April 30th weekend, is the weekend for seeing the cherry blossoms in High Park.

High Park Cherry Blossoms at peak bloom!

Tonight is a good time to check them out, or this weekend.

And park legally in the park b/c you will get a ticket.

I suggest parking near the park and walking in.
