What The Well-Dressed Crepe Myrtle Is Wearing This Spring

Many of the trees on Perkins Road between Dalrymple Drive and College Drive enjoy wearing necklaces made of colorful plastic beads. These accessories were caught during the annual Saint Patrick's Day parade which travels through the Hundred Oaks and Southdowns neighborhood. Beads, doubloons, plastic cups and stuffed animals are thrown out to spectators during Mardi Gras parades, but several other parades in Baton Rouge also toss out goodies.

LOL! They'll get lost in a few months when the crepe myrtle bursts into bloom!
