Crepe Myrtle flowers are very common in many parts of North Texas that I have visited. Until tonight, little did I know about the origins of the plant. Wikipedia has some interesting information about the Crepe Myrtle.
In our garden, we are lucky enough to have about 10 different Crepe Myrtle trees. Some are not as big as the others, but we have some tall ones. The flowers are very pretty and they come in different colors. This particular one, pictured above, is a pink one, presented here in beautiful B&W.
