Once a year for just a few days, Toronto’s High Park plays host to a beautiful scene of cherry blossoms in full bloom. This year we decided to take the pilgrimage for the first time to see these beauties in person.
We decided to park the car and take the subway over. I hear it gets quite busy at the park during cherry blossom season and we didn’t want to bother with traffic and finding parking. The subway stop is right across the street from the park and is conveniently named High Park. I used to live and breathe the TTC when I lived in Toronto, but it’s been awhile and I felt like a fresh newb taking the subway. Ken and I marvelled at the brand new trains on the Yonge line. Super clean and high tech, we like!
The weather was not cooperating for us the day we went. It was cold, windy and sprinkling raindrops throughout the day. Since we were riding the subway, going to be walking A LOT and the weather was crap I decided that comfort and warmth was key. When it comes to fashion I love to dress up and have fun, but I am also realistic and don’t believe one has to sacrifice function. So I slipped on my go to comfy Keds, my stretchy Citizens jeggings and this over sized hounds tooth jacket I inherited from my mama.
Unfortunately since the winter was so horrendously cold and April showers decided to hit us hard in May, the cherry blossoms did not bloom to their full potential this year. By the time we got to High Park, the cherry blossoms had only half bloomed and had already made their descent to the ground. I was disappointed as this was my first time to see the cherry blossoms. That’s okay there is always next year.
