High Park - Cherry Blossom Time


Finally, cherry blossoms are here to delight us in Toronto's High Park. It was a special day when we managed to see them. It happened yesterday; we arrived there when it was almost evening, and it was foggy all around us. I noticed that all the most familiar places look more mysterious in the fog. Despite the fact that it was after 6, there were many people, who were enjoying the delicate aroma of the blossoms, and the intricate feeling of the beauty that could vanish at any moment.

  10. Hello Olga:
    Oh how absolutely magical all of this looks to be. The Cherry blossom is glorious and the scent must be incredibly powerful with so many trees in bloom simultaneously. And, its fleeting nature makes the whole event even more special!!!

    Your photographs have captured this special moment so beautifully.

  13. Really magical. I intended to go to Kew or Wisley gardens at the height of cherry blossom time and then somehow got sidetracked. And now the blossom is fading. Still, I did appreciate the blossoms I saw, one tree out of the front windows, and one out of the back.

  16. Bonjour Olga. What a wonderful selection! The cherry blossoms would be enough of a treat, but you also captured some people enjoying them. I love your people shots! My favorite is the older couple sitting on a bench, I think. Have a great week in Toronto! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  17. Hi, Olga
    Oh, cherry blossoms are in full bloom like beautiful pink clouds!! I love the subtle and delicate beauty of Sakura in your photos. In Nara, Sakura flowers started falling and I enjoy splendid pink carpets. Sakura have surely mysterious power to energize us and make us happy.

  25. Hi, Olga! I think I know how you are excited. At the beginning of April, I’m restless expecting when cherry blossoms will burst into bloom. Now their lives are mostly going to end after mesmerizing, inspiring, and consoling us in my part of the world. In your photos, the area looks pink cascade of clouds and everyone looks having best time. My favorite is a couple looking up to appreciate the blooms. Enjoy yourself viewing them till the end as pale pink flower shower and carpets.

  28. Olga these are stunning, you have not only captured such a beautiful sight of trees in bloom, but of people enjoying the moment. That is what is so special about your photography. My favourite is the photo of the elderly couple on the bench, particularly the woman who is looking up and being thankful for such beauty. X
