I love that there are crepe myrtles in our front yard.
There have been crepe myrtles
in every place that Mr. H. and I have lived
over the past seventeen years. :-)
There was a crepe myrtle
at the first little apartment we lived in,
the duplex we lived in when our daughter was born,
the first little house we bought
and were living in when our son was born,
the house we built,
and now this house we live in now.
same pretty crepe myrtles outside.
At this house we have
a purplish pink one,
a white one,
and a dark pinkish red one.
Even in this long drought we're in right now,
it's the middle of June and the crepe myrtles are in bloom. :-)
