Peak Bloom

These Japanese cherry trees (Sakura) at the university are in peak bloom. Many people, lots of smiles, and tons of photos!
Absolutely beautiful

@bkbinthecity It really is, Brian! Toronto has a lot of Sakura gifted by the Japanese government at different times. The first gift was 2000 trees in 1959 as a thank you to Toronto for accepting relocated Japanese Canadians after the Second World War (The Toronto Star ran a little story in the paper today :-)

I love the way you have done this. Beautiful. Favourite for me to think about and maybe try myself.

@johnfalconer Thanks, John. I actually took a ton of photos and had trouble selecting. Ultimately, these two rose to the surface as a combo in a way.

It works. Especially with the guy with the super telephoto lens.

Annual ceremony. It's interesting. It's the same every year, but always delightful!

Well spotted and beautifully captured such a pretty sight and image Heather, made me smile to see the lady with the large lens in the foreground and chap with the mobile phone behind, suspect they both got the shot they were after:)

Fav. Looks like a canopy of beautiful flowers. If I were there I would be with the camera taking as many pictures as I can of this scene.

The blossoms have certainly brought in the crowds and I can see why I bet you were working hard to find a space Heather

Wow! That blossom is amazing. Just like images and footage I’ve seen of cherry trees in Japan. Fav.
