Musings on the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival Part 2

I promised to post pictures back on May 7.  Now, over a month late, here I am.

Downtown Binghamton in the spring is no Macon.  But spring was pretty good to us, too.

The flowering trees, for the most part, have done their thing here.  The crabapples, in particular, were spectacular. (You'll have to take my word for it.)  The vandals of the downtown dinosaurs could not ruin spring for us.

So, it is time to think again about....Macon, GA. and its cherry blossom festival.

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.

(this photo was taken with permission-of the human.)

A magnificant 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.
