Best of AM - Musings on the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival

Binghamton, New York will not be seeing cherry blossoms for a few more weeks.  But I can't wait for spring to get here so I am going back to a post from June, 2010.  Enjoy the pictures from the Macon, Georgia Cherry Blossom festival of March, 2010.  Feel the warmth and smell the blossoms.

I still think Binghamton can do something like this festival - wouldn't it be grand?

Musings on the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival (Part 2)

It was a long way to travel to see some trees, some would say.  Yes, a long way from the Binghamton, NY area.  But where in Binghamton would you see scenery such as this?  Pink was the color of the day, and many lawns in upscale areas had pink poodle lawn decorations as a fundraiser.

A magnificent specimen.

Three smaller specimens.


One of North Macon's beautiful neighborhoods.
And last, but not least....I would be remiss if I didn't publish some photos of downtown Macon.  Here, one of the edges of the awesome Mulberry Street Arts and Crafts Festival.  And, a final shot of downtown.  (And fear not....Sustainable Saturday will be back next Saturday.)
