These beautiful Crape Myrtle trees are new to me. The are everywhere down here and I even have three in my yard. I'm seeing these beautiful blooms on all, BUT the ones in my yard. I think I have a problem with pests, which I never had up north. I was a naive gardener. Morgan and I bought Japanese Beetle traps yesterday. I'll spare you the gory details but now I know where the term "Beetle Juice" came from!
