A Different Bloomer


I have driven past this tree many times through the years, and finally  bothered to stop and take a photo.  Have seen many more shoes on this tree at various times in the past.
I suppose a big wind or snowstorm could decimate the decorations, as it would with any tree in bloom.  Or maybe someone just saw a pair they could not live without!

Do you notice that all the shoes are paired?
I’ll bet that makes it easier to get them to hang on the tree.
I believe I’ve seen similar trees on other desolate roads – though this particular one gets plenty of traffic for a two-lane road.

  1. Is there a reason for hanging shoes on the branches? Just curious! 🙂

  2. This is so peculiar ! I’ve never seen that kind of display. From time to time, we can see some shoes hanging on an electric cable in town (as a result of a night with too much alcohol)
