Every year in March, the town of Macon, Georgia comes alive with Cherry Blossoms!
For the last 33 years, it has held it's International Cherry Blossom Festival.The event last for 10 days.
On Saturday,my hubby and I met 2 of my sisters to attend. They live in this quiet southern town. It's also the town I lived in where I met and married, a little over 51 years ago. We got my hubby to take photo's of us.
There I am on the right.
The street is lined with trees between Mulberry St. and Cherry Street. It is so beautiful!
Pretty soft pink blossoms!
There are over 300,000 Yoshino Cherry Trees planted around town. It is by Congressional Records referred to as the Cherry Blossom Capital of the world. You can read about it, just click on the link below:
There is so much to do and see. We spent several hours walking and looking. They even went back on Sunday.
The town is filled with Pink Cherry blossoms everywhere, they even have a "Pink Trash Can" ! Just what every girl wants,right?
Isn't it cute...!
In honor of the Festival, I am using my Cherry Blossom teacup my daughter, Gina, gave me a few years ago.
I love the details on the flowers and the spoon is so delicate.
Just a little blurred...sorry!
I am having an Orange and Cranberry scone along with my cup of Green Tea.
Have a Blessed Day!
