Well though it still doesn’t feel like spring, and after the long wait, spring blooms finally comes to Toronto.
The CN Tower can be spotted from Trinity Bellwoods Park which was way quieter than the bustling High Park. After leaving High Park and making our way to Trinity Bellwoods, as you can tell from the photo we were losing light quickly.
At High Park you will see many signs asking you not to touch the Blooming Blooms, I didn’t see any signs at Trinity Bellwoods, but I also made sure not to touch the blooms, or even the trees. In the photo it may look like I’m touching the tree, but I assure you—I’m not.
As you can see not all the blossoms are open, so I took the opportunity to get a macro shot of the buds.
In order to avoid getting people in my shots I had to aim quite high up in the trees.
Not only was the cherry blossoms in bloom at High Park, but as you can see the backdrop for this photo is forsythia. There was an abundance of the bright yellow forsythia in this spot, and there are about thirty other people besides us taking photos at the same time with the bright yellow backdrop.
The magnolia tree still had plenty of blooms.
All in all in spite of the coolness of the day, it was a wonderful afternoon.
