Red Buds Blooming
We just got back from a river barge excursion last week. http://www.riverbarge.com/
New Orleans is blooming with tourists and spring flowers. The redbuds were blooming in the French Quarter around Jackson Square.
Musicians near Jackson Square.
Street musicians, artists and mimes were out.
You still have to crowd into a packed Cafe Du Monde, for beniets and coffee.
Fern filled hanging baskets won’t be safe for leaving outdoors in Cape Girardeau for another month. It was great to see this balcony garden on Jackson square in early March, 2008.
It is short sleeved weather in new Orleans. We shall see our own red buds in Cape in a couple more weeks. We will pray for a rain free redbud dog wood season to help make the garden land workable and extend the beautiful trees blooming.
The parts of New Orleans that was always a tourist attraction are back and waiting for you business. Tourists would be wise to come now when the crowds are light yet the French Quarter is live and vibrant.
