rain or shine, mel and i are always up for an adventure! over the weekend we mentioned maybe going to see the cherry blossoms on monday, i had the morning of and mel had the day off! again, our plans usually begin with coffee and we go from there = caffeine fuelled adventures! first stop reunion island!
either of us had made time to see the cherry blossoms yet, and the flowers are in peak bloom. peak bloom starts when at least 70% of the blossoms are open. once open, flowers last from 4-10 days, depending on the weather. on the high park nature centre website, you can view what stage the cherry blossoms are in. today, approximately 90-100% of the blossoms are open.
i’m glad the rain didn’t stop us! we were able to park close enough and walk to a spot where a bunch of the trees were to wander around!
if you haven’t already, i would take the time to see the trees while there in full bloom, if not you may be waiting another year to see them!
