There's a special species of tree that blooms after Carnival season in New Orleans. Have you seen any Mardi Gras trees around?
I just love this season, and the beads in crepe myrtles or other trees make the season bright. Only in good ole New Orleans can a tree be made into a masterpiece of color and texture.
And how does your garden grow?
Also, do not forget your necessities when traveling to the parade route.
Bead Trees, y’all!
