2018 High Park Cherry Blossoms

I made my annual pilgrimage to High Park to take shots of the cherry blossoms in peak bloom. Here are photos I took at lunch today.

Very nice pictures. Hope to visit there with my sweetheart in the next week or so. I live close enough
but she's out in Scarborough and already has a lengthy commute to work. So will see, but at least
now I can see why this is such an annual popular attraction.

Just don't wait too long... the bloom might be gone by next week!

Well, I mentioned it to her in passing yesterday and she expressed great interest, but she was
already forced to travel across town on one of her rare stretches of four days off in a row, so
not sure if I'll be able to convince her to do it again in time!! I guess I can always direct her to your
pictures and brief video as the next best thing! Thanks!!

If you're into that stuff take a trip to Vancouver in spring. It's endless.

Did you see the baby bison?

I want to hug it!

Yes, if you sell your house and buy a 3 million dollar home along Cambie, sure. And there are better bike lanes *sticks out tongue*.

I recall someone from England coming here (I think this was in the late 1970s or early '80s) to visit my parents, and asked if they could go to Vancouver for the afternoon.
