High Park Cherry Blossoms
As I mentioned, I came here finally to see what all the fuss is about. It turns out it's about selfies. What was this about before camera phones? Did people come to just enjoy the trees? Was it even thing without cameras? While I've been given a rough background of the sakura blossom time in Japan, I honestly don't know the history of cherry blossom season in Toronto. I don't know because 90% of the people here now have a camera (of some kind) in hand. I did notice a few people just chilling, watching the other people and animals, and one group having a picnic. The people that stuck out the most were two young men, one of whom appeared to be Japanese and he was teaching the white boy with him about the trees and the blossoms themselves. I'm going to guess either the Canadian dude is one of those people obsessed with Japan, or they're biology students. So, with all the selfies in mind, this is what I saw at the peak of the bloom. And please, listen to the signs and leave the trees alone!
