Cherry Blossoms in Georgia

Say "cherry blossoms", and everyone immediately thinks of Washington, D.C. But, there's more to know about this Flowering Cherry of Japanese origin. After I photographed this specimen today, I went home to my computer to research it and - guess what! - I think I've made a "find".
According to the USDA Natural Conservation Resources Services' web site, the Prunus serrulata Lindl. is only found in California and Massachusetts in this country. But I know where there is one - at least one! - in Georgia.
Regardless, it's a gorgeous tree and this photograph only barely is an indication of its beauty.
