In case you haven’t been on social media this week, the cherry blossoms have arrived in Toronto thanks to the recent surge of warm weather.

But according to Sakura in High Park’s latest update, the best time to check out the city’s iconic High Park cherry blossoms is today and tomorrow, because onset rain could potentially damage the buds before the weekend arrives.

Meaning you have a very small window to view the High Park blossoms this year.

But if you’re not up for dealing with the crowds, there are plenty of other places in and around Toronto to check out the blossoms in peak bloom.

Just under an hour west of the city in Burlington, the Royal Botanical Gardens is bursting with signs of spring, and its stunning cherry blossom trees have reached peak bloom and it’s truly a sight to see.

The cherry blossoms can be located in various areas of the gardens, with a majority of the blossoms in the Arboretum and Rock Garden.

At the gardens, the blossoms are a mix of white and pink, making the trees look like clouds of cotton candy.

Need further convincing to pay the gardens a visit? Check out the incredible cherry blossoms below.
