Some photos from last Wednesday when I visited Kariya Park. cherryb1.jpgCherry blossoms last an incredibly short time each year, normally 1-2 weeks (in Toronto) at most. cherryb5There are some years (such as last year) in which poor weather can result in the trees not blooming as the blossoms are so delicate that they simply fall off from the wind and rain. cherryback.jpgCase in point, the day I went only 1/3 of the trees were in bloom, but I’m quite sure after a windy and incredible amount of rain from today, all the trees will be bare.cherryb2
