When I first moved to my house my friends from Dallas helped me along my way to buying a new home. So in my front yard I planted a tree called a Crepe Myrtle, this is my friend Shirley's favorite tree...So I call my white Crepe Myrtle in the front yard Shirley and every year I send her a picture of my Shirley. She has moved to Casper, Wy where these won't grow. Since then I have planted 6 more crepe myrtles in my yard and a few are pictured below...look clear thru to the beautiful flowers I still have in bloom even know we have been in the high 90's for over a week now. And last but not least check out the size of that texas bug in my garden..YUK! YUK! YUK!
