The Fleur de Lis appears almost everywhere in New Orleans. I was just walking by this window of a church on Prytania Street when I noticed it in the stained glass on the bottom
The architects this weekend rolled out the Rebuilding the Crescent plan -- a plan to open access to the river in 19 places in New Orleans. It will introduce new parks and plaza, exciting new architectural tokens and "statement" hotels and condos overlooking the river. (the Crescent is, off course, the Mississippi River which makes a wide bend around New Orleans, giving it the moniker, the Crescent City.
But at the plaza at the foot of Canal Street, they talked about observing the various heritages with the Spanish medallion, the French medallion and others laid in the brick pavers. Included among these was the "New Orleans medallion" -- a circle with the Fleur de lis.
Guess I need to get a Fleur De Lis on my masthead.
Oh, thank everyone for the kind words and encouragements yesterday on my 100th post. It re-energized me.
