Beneath the Sakura Tree

May 07, 2013

I finally made it to Cherry Blossoms season at High Park this year! Where was I all these years in Toronto, you ask? No clue. I always seem to be very busy during that time of the year so the idea did not come on top of my head and when I finally realize, everyone has already went or that the petals have already fallen. Yet, this year, thankfully a friend initiated the idea and reminded me of it. So, we quickly set a side a day for Sakura Hanami and prepared our cameras to catch these beautiful flowers in full bloom.

Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) are widely known and most popular in Japanese or Asian culture. I always love Sakura due to their delicacy, unique shape and soft pink colour. It is unfortunate that these lovely Sakura have such a short life span.They remind me how important it is to cherish the things around you or things you already have before you regret afterwards for losing them.

I am not sure since when Cherry Blossoms have become a symbol of fortune and love. Perhaps, I have been deeply influenced by Japanese manga and anime, where these flowers added ambient effect to most vanilla stories I've read.

Next time, I'd be sure to find someone whom I love to walk with me beneath these beautiful Sakura trees. It should bring me love and fortune by now (giggles).

Visit the Cherry Blossoms in High Park here.

Also, for those who may have missed or unable to visit this year. Here is how you can make your own Cherry Blossom and enjoy some Hanami at home for the time being.

Remember to cherish those around you. 

Happy Sakura Hanami~
