Sakura Watch, April 6, 2014 - Buds still closed

Sakura Watch, April 6, 2014 - Buds still closed throughout the park today with little notable change from last week. Have a look at the photos from a visit to High Park today and notice the tightly closed, deep red-brown tips and slender teardrop shapes to all the blossom buds. This all shows we are still at least a few weeks away from possible blooms.

Then next clues to look for are buds that begin to grow larger, fuller and especially start to turn green with growing bulbous tips. Warmer weather is in the forecast over the next number of days which will hopefully help the development of the trees along. Stay tuned for more Sakura Watch updates!
