Photo Filler! I Went to the Park!

The blooming of the sakura trees in High Park is the starting pistol of spring here in Toronto, as official a sign as we can get that we’ve made it through another winter and can breathe easy for the next seven months or so

The trees, a gift to the city from the Japanese Ambassador in 1959 as thanks for the city’s acceptance of relocated Japanese citizens after WWII, line the southwest corner of the park on the shore of Grenadier Lake.  You still probably have a few days to get down and see them, and it’s totally worth your time.  Just get there early if you care about dodging a crowd.

Photos after the jump.
