Cherry Blossoms 2013
After just three sunny days and above seasonal temperatures Mother Nature presented us with glorious pink cherry blossoms. Metro is decked out in its finery with glorious Cherry blossoms.
My favorite place to view nature’s spectacle has to be High Park, the ever so slightly meandering path flanked on both sides by Cherry Blossoms leading the enthusiastic observer laden with cameras down to the pond. On the left side the low hillside provides many families with the opportunity to frolic or picnic. What could be better than to enjoying the slight breeze under the shade of blossoms, while resting on colorful blankets and watching the endless parade of children, pet dogs, baby carriages and men and women in colorful attire? The air is filled with the cacophony of cheerful laughter as the crowds make that slow trek down to the Pond. And it does not end there; you may follow the path alongside the pond observing the blossom laden trees against the blue sky with fluffy clouds or the glistening pond dotted with families of geese, swans and ducks.
This spring tradition should not be missed.
