It might still be chilly outside, but spring is here and that can only mean one thing: Picturesque selfies taken near beautiful vegetation.

It also means it’s cherry blossom time.

Although it might be windy and cold right now, it will soon be time to take a scenic and serene walk through Kariya Park in Mississauga. In fact, Kariya Park is the definition of hidden gem and it’s located right in the heart of Mississauga. It boasts meandering walkways, a quiet pond and hill garden and approximately 59 Cherry Blossom trees.

So, when will the cherry blossoms finally bloom?

According to Sakura Watch, a blog that monitors the renowned sakura cherry blossoms in High Park, Japanese cherry blossoms should bloom sometime in late April or early May of this year.

“Green tips signal next stage has begun all thanks to the recent bout of warmer weather,” the Sakura Watch blog reads.

“During my visit to High Park, I finally saw hints of the cherry blossom trees moving into the second stage of development.”

Sakura Watch says that, during the second stage of development, the buds will appear larger, well rounded, and display prominent green upper sections.

The blog predicts that peak bloom will occur late this month or early next.

Sakura Watch says weather will now play a crucial role in determining when to expect the blossoms to open, but the ups and downs in the forecast make it difficult to know when, exactly, the blossoms will emerge.
