Happy Earth Day: High Park sakura spot check
April 22, 2013 by jnyyz
Earth Day seemed to be a good occasion to check on the progress of the sakura in High Park.
There are buds now, but they are still behind where they were last year on April 2. Of course last spring was anomalously early. I’d say the blooms are about two weeks away, which would be typical timing.
The City has already put up some portapotties in anticipation of the crowds. I predict a need for more trash cans.
These sakura on the northeast corner of Harbord and Huron usually bloom about a week before the ones in High Park. You can see that they still have a ways to go.
