For as long as I can remember, crepe myrtles have always been a part of my life. My maternal grandparents had them in their yard and my parents had one in their yard. I don't know much about them but I do remember that one of my relatives tried to grow one in Kansas City, MO, and it wouldn't grow. I do know that they come in different colors and in one small area near my office, these three colors have blossomed.
Song of the Day: 'Wishing on a Star' by Rose Royce - The Cover Girls did a nice version. And Paul Weller's gender flip was perfect. But there's no substitute for the classic original.
