Oh wow! I love that red crape. The color is awesome. I have a purple butterfly bush. Cant wait to use my new camera to capture pictures this year. Most of the crape 's are either white or the pink around here. The redbud tree's and forsynthia bushes are what will start blooming first around here.  Is that red flower Beesbalm?

I love crepe Myrtle's. I think I am going to plant some this year. I planted a couple of Rose of Sharon about 3 years ago and they have really took off.  Did a buttlerfly bush the year before and it has done very well last year. That reminds me I need to check it. What color are your Myrtles?

Cindy, I here ya! I had to trim my Crape myrtle's. They were forming bud already! Crapes are usually the last to leave out here! i trimed the roses too!
