Spring is officially here, and we’re ready for the warm temperatures, patio weather, and most of all, cherry blossom season. Cherry blossoms are a symbolic flower of spring and a time of renewal, which is perfect after a tumultuous past year.
While you can see cherry blossoms on plenty of street corners, there are several festivals nearby to enjoy these beautiful blooms. Macon Cherry Blossom Festival (March 19-28) and Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival (March 27-28) are quick, convenient drives from Atlanta. Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground features cherry blossoms as well as hundreds of other seasonal flowers like daffodils.
