one of life's remaining anticipation ...
Each spring I look forward to the explosion of pink blossoms at High Park (Toronto's version of Central Park in NYC). This year due to the brittle cold winter and cold spring the anticipation lasted slightly longer. The blossoms started to come alive the week-end of Mother's Day.
Sakura trees also known as cherry blossom trees are known for their elegance and beauty. Unfortunately they are also known for their short blooming periods. Approximately one week after the first blossoms appear, 'kaika', 'full bloom' or 'mankai' is achieved.
The severe cold & prolonged winter which prevented many of the blossom buds to develop and instead promote going straight to leaves has resulted in the loss of many blossoms this year.
Despite the lack of blossoms everyone was enjoying this annual gift from mother nature. Cameras, Iphones, Ipads and all sorts of digital image capturing devices were everywhere. In today's fast paced , instant gratification world ... one will have to wait another year before this gift from mother nature appears again.
Even Dolce and Gabbana were delighted with the cherry blossoms ...
Do you look forward to the cherry blossoms each year?
Light and Love,
Stay in Step with High Heeled Life ...
