The irony is that we are known for our famous rose gardens, which are lovely, and our Rose Festival each May. However, nothing can compare to Miss Margaret's campaign to bring Cherry Trees to the city streets. And, as anyone is aware, she is a southern lady with great charm and a force to be reckoned with. She wanted Cherry Trees and Cherry Trees we have.
So for one week during the spring, everyone in town is blessed with the beauty of Miss Margaret's Cherry Trees and the fruits of her relentless campaign to line the streets of the city. We are reminded the true beauty of spring. Even after she is gone, her legacy will live on.
