Still waiting for Cherry Blossoms in Niagara

Update May 12, 2018: The blossoms have started to show but the cold weather might have hindered their development. Some trees have already started to have more leaves than blossoms and the orchard fields seem to have sparse blossoms now. Maybe another week may be required for peak bloom - or this could be it.

Only the Magnolia blossoms are out to play now. Cherry blossoms are still waiting for warmer weather as the buds are small on the trees. The tiny buds grow into florets and finally become cute little blossoms along row after row of trees in Niagara area orchards.

Even without the beautiful, fragrant flowers on hundreds of acres of trees, it is still a good time to visit the Niagara on the Lake area and the wineries of the Niagara Region. The VQA designated area is located within the boundaries of the Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario and the Niagara River and has four different grape growing areas - Niagara Lakeshore (NL), Four Mile Creek (FM), St Davids Bench (SB) and Niagara River (NR). We visited Palatine Hills Estate Winery which is in the NR area. Other recommended winery visits include Ravine Vineyard and Big Head Wines.
