High Park Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) 2015!

On Monday (May 4th), I went to High Park to see the sakura (cherry blossoms).

It was a cloudy day,

I am always amazed by how spectacular the trees are when they are in full bloom.

On Monday, only about half the trees in the park were blooming.

If you happen to go tomorrow (Friday, May 8th) or over the weekend, all the trees should be in full bloom.

I also saw a reindeer calf in the High Park Zoo that couldn’t have been more than a few days old. She was still a little unsteady on her feet 🙂

Like all new babies, she was very sleepy.

There were also two West Highland calves.

A face only a mother could love …?

Dad was watching from the far end of the pen.

The cherry blossoms should be out for one more week…try to go and see them if you have a chance!
