Look at the beautiful cherry blossoms in High Park. The park is filled with these blossoms right now and tourists from all over the world are here to see them. The Sakura cherry blossom is a sacred tree in Japan. Japanese tourists (and Japanese people who live in this city) are loving our blossoms this year.

Now, regarding the birdhouse near the trees. It's been in High Park for many years and it's here to house the swallows. This is another miracle of Nature. The swallows arrive in mid-summer and they remain until the 10th or 11th of August. Then, like clockwork, they fly away. I've always been amazed by the beautiful blue swallows, watching them swoop down over the ponds and then return to the trees or to their birdhouse.

I am so grateful for the beauty of Nature which surrounds us.

Hi Sheila & VV:
I'm so happy that VV is now living amongst the lovely cherry blossoms. They are particulary lovely this year because we had a relatively snow-free winter. Enjoy!!

And Sheila, enjoy those Swallows while you can. Aren't they so beautiful?

The first Swallows arrived here Saturday morning, They immediatly started cleaning up the nest's they abandoned last year to get ready for nesting and new babies. Nature is wonderful no mortgauge, no planning permits, no trips to the builders provider, everything is just there for them.
