Last year I remember feeling really sad when I found out that High Park has an informal festival when their cherry trees bloom, much like in Japan. Since I went to Japan in autumn I wasn’t able to experience hanami and after finding out that Toronto had its own version I was determined to attend this year. Well all my online stalking paid off and along with God’s provision of beautiful weather this past weekend I was able to enjoy my first hanami. I took plenty of pictures and even got to sit under the trees and enjoy a picnic. It’s definitely something that I plan on doing for years.
