Crepe Myrtle

This afternoon I was talking to my neighbour Dave over the side fence.  I asked him what the nice red flower was near the fence.  He told me it was a Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica)     

When Joan was near the end of her time, we had a conversation with Dave and Judy about the need for more street trees.  Joan said that she liked Crepe Myrtle.    They planted one there for Joan.  I didn’t know that and this is the first time I have seen it in flower almost three years since her death.

 Thanks Dave and Judy.
