PEACH COUNTY, Ga. — If you’re practicing social distancing and haven’t stepped outside lately, you may not have noticed that spring has definitely sprung.
Or maybe you’ve spent some time in the park at a safe social distance and as a result, you’re battling intense pollen allergies.
Although we’re going through some drastic changes in our normal everyday lives, nature for the most part is unchanged.
13WMAZ’s Suzanne Lawler took these photos -- at a safe social distance from people -- of the peach blossoms off Highway 96.
As you can see, they're in full bloom! Peach season usually starts in May for Georgia and other southeastern states.
And although the Cherry Blossom Festival scheduled for this weekend is canceled, the cherry blossoms at the Fickling farm put on their own show earlier this month.
It’s not only Central Georgia’s natural beauty that’s been glowing these past few days.
Highly-populated areas around the world affected by COVID-19 have seen nature come back to life, due to residents being on lockdown.
In Venice, Italy, water in their canals turned crystal clear after their population went into quarantine earlier this month. Without all the boats crowding the waters, fish and swans could be seen in the canals.
As China slowed down production in their factories and parts of the country went into lockdown, images from NASA showed smog pollution clearing from the air.
