We went for the cherry blossoms, but enjoyed the walk to High Park, the weather, the good company, the lovely little High Park Zoo (and a few new animal babies there), and more. Of course, we talked about Mother’s Day!
The cherries were at high bloom so, bright and early, the park was already bustling with crowds and photo-takers. There were pretty flower petals strewn on the ground everywhere and… just a few too many noisy people about, even at 10:00 a.m.
We all had busy days ahead, so decided we’d just enjoy a short walk up through the zoo to admire the Grenadier Pond view from above, without even walking down that very popular (and very busy) pond-side cherry tree path. Then we headed home. I didn’t take too many cherry blossom photos this time. I was enjoying the walk, the view, the conversation. And… I’ve been here to see the cherries before. If you need more cherry blossom pictures, take a look back in time!
And this week’s plan…
May 17, 2015:
Do you remember our winter walk to the Wychwood Art Barns, and through the lovely little neighbourhood of Wychwood Park? That was late December, 2013. (Yes! We’ve been walking almost two years.) We saw snowy lots, pretty houses, and a dad helping his son over the fence and into skates to practice a few slapshots on the pond. Wychwood is also beautiful in spring: bulbs blooming, snow gone, trees greening. And the pond will be thawed! Let’s go have a look. Wear good shoes for this one. Let’s just say there’s a little hill…
Walks just ahead:
Doors Open Toronto, a Kensington Pedestrian Sunday visit, Riverdale ArtWalk, the Mac and Cheese Fest! And lots more spring, summer and fall walking fun. Plenty to plan. Picnics, a brunch or two, and some excellent explorations to fit in while we have fabulous weather. Let’s talk about it!
See you soon!
