Why do I feel like the official High Park cherry blossom apologist? Yes, they're late. Compared to the last few years, they're super late. Here it is May 2nd and the High Park cherry blossoms have yet to bloom.
I was in High Park this afternoon, to check on the buds. They're starting to open, but they still need another 4-6 days before peak bloom. I'm hoping this weekend will be the ideal time to take photos of nature's fireworks.
Here are two pictures of our budding cherry blossoms, taken this evening by yours truly.
I'll be back in High Park Wednesday night, so I'll let you know when the cherry blossoms are ready for their closeups.
When it's time, here's your guide to finding High Park's best cherry blossoms.
