Beads in Trees


I was running errands along Water Avenue recently when I noticed bunches of brightly colored beads in a Savannah Holly tree.

Okay, we all know that beads don't grow on trees, so why are they there? My best guess is that somebody must be celebrating Mardi Gras ... early!

...Or maybe they have been up there since last year. I wonder if the birds try to eat them?

Odd combination, good catch.

I see these beads all over downtown Pensacola, left over from Mardi Gras past. It's kinda fun to see them in so many odd places.

My first thought was Mardi Gras too. When I was growing up they threw confetti and serpentine but finally had to outlaw it due to the big mess it made on the streets of Mobile.

That seems odd...but we don't celebrate Mardi Gras the way you do!

Somebody found them nearby and hung them up? Or, just decoration. I once put colored glass icicles in a maple tree in winter just to spruce things up a bit...and confuse the neighbors.

Dorothy, it's possible these beads HAVE been up since last year. I sure hope the birds don't think they are seeds!

PJ, how interesting that these are found in Pensacola too. Selma doesn't really have a Mardi Gras parade or major celebration. However, there are some arts groups that have a Mardi Gras party.

Boise Diva, colored icicles, huh? Bet those are beautiful in the sunshine!
