Sunday in High Park with sakura (May 11, 2014)

It was time to check out the sakura in High Park on a beautiful Sunday morning. Here we are on our way to the park.
This sign is new this year. Hopefully, this will keep people from climbing the trees. Last year there was some significant damage to a couple of the trees.
Traffic going into the park. Not as crowded as I expected.
Riding by the soccer fields, I thought that the blooms might not be that good, since these trees generally are the first to bloom in the park.
However, once we got to the hillside garden, it was beautiful, even though the blooms were not that dense yet.
Theoretically, the blooms might be better next weekend. However, rain is forecast for most of the coming week, and so it is hard to tell the shape that the trees will be in. One thing for sure is that it will be much more crowded, especially with the long weekend.
A walk in the park afterwards.
and then a thirst quenching stop at a lemonade stand!
What a nice way to spend part of Mother’s Day!
