cherry blossoms

With spring taking its time to arrive, the cherry blossoms in High Park finally bloomed about a month later than usual this past weekend. As I missed them last year, no way was I missing it again. I had hoped to go on Sunday but I heard the crowds were quite large so I'm glad I waited. I went for a nice walk after work today and took some pictures.

Saw Thor and I liked it. Had no idea Natalie Portman was in this movie but she was okay. The whole romance between Thor & Jane was ridiculous though. They knew each other for what? A day or so? The CGI was really well done which actually makes me feel better about The Green Lantern. My one complaint -- more shirtless scenes with Chris Hemsworth was required. C'mon, dude must've worked hard for that physique, let the man show it off!

bauersgirl e-mailed me this link about the CN Tower's new attraction -- taking a walk on the outside. I don't know if I have the nerve to do this!

AHAHAHAHA how adorable are these boys?! Pretty sure Chris is actually asleep here and had no idea what Chord & Mark were doing. Oh, I could just feel the Kurt/Sam shippers exploding through the interwebs LOL Ashley Fink has confessed she was one who snapped the pics. I ♥ this cast.

Wow so many stunning photos thanks for sharing hon. Love cherry blossoms.

Hope you had a great weekend. I saw and loved Thor too. I agree too that Chris was so delicously perfect for the role, and needed to show it off more. Natalie was adorable, but then it could have been another actress too. She showed great acting, but not her best outlet for it in a story like this. I liked their romance. It made sense to me as they had a connection with her passion for studying the universe (and what is unknown out there), and how he was explaining things to her. Though it needed to be expanded and given more time in the film. Love the effects and cannot wait to see Chris as Thor again.


I adore these glee photos. Chris is sooooooo adorable. That was so made of win when he performed Born This Way with old pals again. So glad he is back.

Have a great Tuesday :D

Glad you enjoyed the pics :D

Chris did a really good job playing Thor. I loved the whole fish-out-of-water scenes when he was on Earth.

I'm really glad Kurt is back with ND as well (now, we just need Blaine to transfer!) Really looking forward to tonight's prom episode.

Hi hon.

Hope you are having a great weekend. I am relaxing before workk tonight.

Chris was great as Thor. So funny him trying to fit in on Earth. When he smashes the mug and says "I'll have another." Lol kills me everytime.

Oh yes please. Would love Blaine to transfer that would be the best. The prom episode was so sweet.

Have a great day

SO pretty!! There still seemed to be a large crowd out!

Does Rina want to walk on the outside?!?! I don't know if I'd have the guts either.

The park was busier than I thought it would be but it wasn't too bad.

Well, she never said she doesn't...

Gorgeous pictures! Happy you got to see the blossoms this year and thanks for sharing! Great job getting some with no people or crowds in them.

I saw the guy that played Thor on Leno and thought, "maybe I need to see this movie" ;)

Ooh, I'd do that CN walk. But not for $175, sheesh! I feel a new Amazing Race roadblock for an upcoming season...

Glad you liked the pics! The majority of the trees are concentrated in one area as you can tell from the crowd but there were a few trees more off on their own which made getting people-free pics a bit easier.

I saw the guy that played Thor on Leno and thought, "maybe I need to see this movie"

Perfectly valid reason :D

The CN Tower walk as a TAR roadblock? That would be awesome!

Oh wow the blossom photos are amazing. Do you mind if I snag a couple to maybe make icons at some point (would credit photos to you and they would probably be only for my own use or if any friends wanted them - I'm fairly beginner with graphs so wouldn't post them anywhere or anything).

And awwwwwww the Glee cast :D Chris is totally unconscious and the other two are just sneaking in some cuddle time.

Of course you may snag pics! I've never had anyone make icons from my pics before :)

I would love to know Chris' reaction when he found out the pics (a) exist and (b) were tweeted LOL
