Bead Trees


I'm not sure if riders on floats intentionally toss beads onto some of the crepe myrtles in the common ground between the lanes of St. Charles Avenue or if the beads end up on the limbs by chance. This tree in the Garden District is the most spectacular for the number of strings on it.

A lot beads on that tree. Does someone eventually take them all off I wonder or do they stay until they drop?

They remain on the tree and on the power lines and the streetcar lines until rain, wind, hurricanes (oh, please, no) cause them to fall.

I always love the bead trees. You can usually spot them all year 'round.

Another trigger for my homesickness, which usually lasts from MG to Jazz Fest, on through to July, when NOLA is not habitable by man or beast. Bead trees on the neutral ground. It's a good thing I'm only afew hours' drive away.
