Thank goodness, le boyfriend and I ended up at High Park two weeks ago! Had we waited to this weekend, the cherry blossoms might’ve been gone completely due to the crappy weather we’ve been having. We missed the blossoms last year, and I was not about to miss them again!
After a quick stop at King Slice on Bloor St for some really delicious pizza*, off to High Park we went. The trees were in bloom, the grass was covered with bodies and blankets, the choo-choo-train was full of kids and parents, and the dogs were running around, having the time of their lives. All is right with the world again now that spring is in the air. I actually climbed** a cherry tree for a photo, which was fun, until an elderly Asian lady tried to do the same without bending her legs…thankfully she didn’t get hurt…but we did get a laugh out of it.
As happy as that weekend at High Park was for me, I did get sick that day – with a cold that took me out of commission for a full week! Live and learn. Next year, I am wearing a sweater to watch the trees bloom and maybe a wrap blanket too, and I don’t care if the little kids make fun of me.
*If you live in Toronto and still haven’t tried King Slice – shame on you. Go on, and try not to like their pizza – impossible!
**I didn’t actually climb the tree, but was kind of sort of helped up by le boyfriend…same thing.
