Here's a rather large specimen! This bag comes to us from Brewer's Hill, one of a few neighborhoods in East Baltimore which seem to reproduce bags like rabbits. Between Highlandtown, Brewer's Hill and Canton... readers and staff alike are already feeling a little 'bit' of that Easter spirit!

Guest BIT: Jefferson Hospital
Today's BIT was sent by Tom, who snapped this photo on a chilly St. Patrick's Day in Philadelphia, PA. Although beyond the boundaries of our fine city, we felt it was important to feature this BIT in particular.
From a window at Jefferson Hospital
's Cancer Ward, this bag can be seen flying high and proud, steadfast against the brisk March weather. Although seen only as a mere plastic bag to some, to fans of Bags In Trees this can only be a symbol of willpower and strength. We hope the beauty of such an image provides some inspiration to those lucky enough to appreciate its presence.

What confidence! The sight of this bag nearly took my breath away! During the winter months, bag sightings, although frequent, tend to be somewhat sad and depressing. The bags of the season are often battered by the weather and cold. So what a sight for sore eyes to see this lovely creature in tact!

Guest BIT: Load of Fun Gallery
Today's guest bag-in-tree is brought to us by Cory, and what a sight it is! Cory managed to snap a photo of one of the most ornamented and decorated trees in our fine city. Located outside of the Load of Fun Gallery
, this tree boasts at least eight bags that are visible. It is nothing short of amazing. And how interesting that this tree is located near an art gallery
! How... how... appropriate
Maybe bagsintrees.com should consider an exposition? Maybe this is a sign of things to come?

Just down the street from the local grocery, I spotted one bag, then two, then three - in this high and lofty tree. I was surprised to see three white
bags, since I know (as a local) that the grocery only dispenses brown and blue plastic bags.
"Where have these come from?" I queried silently. Perhaps an establishment on Canton Square? Or possibly a local eatery at the Can Company? It still remains a mystery.

Loitering outside of the Brewer's Hill Pub this day were two of our carefree friends. In the foreground is the more confident and lively subject, while in the background you can just make out the more timid of the two. Whether they are waiting for the pub to open or are left over from the previous nights' activities - it is difficult to say. At least they chose a clear and pleasant day to do so.

Those county bags must be hearing the rumors about our little web site, because I found these two at a Baltimore County Park 'N Ride trying to get a lift into the city. Not to worry... we honor bags in trees wherever they are found, so there is no need for them to travel after today. They can stay safe and sound in the limbs of this tree, where commuters can appreciate them daily.

What a nice change to see a blue sky! On this lucky afternoon, I caught three of our subjects playing gleefully in the branches of this barren tree. I watched them for awhile, delighted at my good fortune to see three at one time as they carried on, blissfully unaware of my presence.
Although likely to have moved on by now, click here
for a map of their location, and report back if they've decided to stay on awhile!

This photo was taken in dearest Highlandtown, where bags seem to congregate and reproduce weekly. Although backlit by a dreary sky, she seems disinterested or even apathetic to her lackluster surroundings. She has chosen a solitary life, and we at BIT feel strongly that we must honor that choice.
