The most Instagramable time of year will soon be here.

That’s right, Cherry Blossom season is around the corner.

While it’s still too early to determine an exact date of when we can expect to see some blossoms, Sakura in High Park’s most recent update reports the park’s cherry blossom trees are showing a great start to the season.

Following a rather brutal winter, Sakura in High Park says some trees are showing signs of damage, however, many are showing healthy, growing buds, which is a great indicator of a strong season ahead.

Since winter still isn’t close to being over, the cold weather can still affect the development of the buds and push the dates out further.

Once the buds reach their peak bloom, they can last around one to two weeks, weather permitting, which makes them a very special sight to see.

Last year, the cherry blossoms hit peak bloom on May 10, attracting thousands of Torontonians to High Park.
