Crepe Myrtle Season

Crepe Myrtles are here! They're my favorite summer blooms because they are so full and colorful! It's like the universe is throwing them in my face and saying

YOU WILL BE HAPPY AND EVERYTHING WILL BE AWESOME!

As a kid, my parents would always stop at every road side stand claiming to sell crepe myrtles in case they found the perfect one for our yard. They must not have ever found the right one because I remember it being an ongoing search and they were forever stopping and looking at them year after year. Our yard had one of every kind of tree imaginable in it when I was growing up. We had a cherry blossom, different magnolia trees, a plum tree, an apple tree, a weeping cherry tree, a pink dogwood and probably more that I'm forgetting. In case you were wondering why this blog exists, or something. ;)
