We’re fortunate that our house is in a neighborhood that is densely populated with famous trees. It was in this neighborhood that the initial organized planting of Yoshinos took place nearly 40 years ago, and it is through our neighborhood that dozens and dozens of cars pass each day this time of year as they experience the Cherry Blossom Driving Trail.

We walked through the neighborhood late yesterday afternoon, and the beautiful flowers are starting to bloom! Through walks like those and drives through the neighborhood, I’ve found a couple of spots that I’m particularly fond of. These are also areas that visitors who have been on the Visit Macon tour van have shared oohs and aahs over numerous times as I’ve led tours.
I love traveling East on Oxford Circle, and just as the street turns left, there’s a house on the left-hand side where there are dozens of trees in the front yard. When they’re in full bloom, it is surely a sight to see! I also really love the drive West on Northside Drive, just as you approach Rivoli Drive. On the left is the Fickling Farm, and the property is lined with cherry trees. As the more densely wooded area opens up, it is breathtaking to see all of the trees.
