What a lovely day! This girl was found high up in the trees in the heart of Canton's remodeling district. Could she be a worker's lunch bag? Or a school child's gym clothes bag? I suppose we'll never really know. But what we do know is that this bag is an important contributor to the success and future of this fine neighborhood. Even discarded it continues to be useful and beautiful.

You've gotta love a bag that knows how to pay it forward.

Speaking of architecture - wow! What a beautiful backdrop for another striking bag in tree! And this bag was not only in public view, but it was located outside of one of Baltimore's esteemed schools, educating our city's children about beauty and the urban landscape everytime they enter and exit.

The day this photo was taken was a breezy one - I'm curious how long this little bag lasted before being blown on to another location. If your commute takes you near Dunbar High, take a look.

One of my favorite things about Baltimore is the diversity of the landscape and the architecture. Just look at this brickwork! And what a better find than an exhausted bag surviving gallantly in a nearby tree?

Baltimore is full of survivors these days - from buildings and bags right down to the steadfastness of its residents. This is a city of enduring dreams. Welcome to the little city (full of bags) that could.

Oh how hard Canton Middle School strives to keep Bags In Trees away from their school, but every so often we spot them... like this one we spotted a few months back. Looking for our precious bags keeps our heads up and our eyes in the trees for the beautiful images that we share with you here. I am nearly 100% sure that this bag is no longer here, but if you're in the neighborhood and can report back, please do so for some extra credit.
