My wife and I went to High Park today for cherry blossom (sakura tree) viewing or hanami if you prefer and to take some pictures. I brought my trusty Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5 which has not been used a lot since I got it last year; 300 photos so far so it needs more flying time.

We were planning to go last week but due to bad weather and other plans, we decided to go today. Unfortunately, a lot of cherry trees are withering already and few of them are completely bald due to wind and rain from last week. Nevertheless, we took some pictures, ate our lunch there despite the chilly weather then went back home so overall it was a good. Because of the cold weather, we didn’t see as many people as we thought it would be.

Is there any cherry trees in your area ? Do you do flower viewing (hanami) ? I hope you all enjoy these photos that I took :).
