Roadside Beauty


I saw this huge crape myrtle in full blossom on a recent trip back to Arizona from Oklahoma via Texas. (Sometimes we go across the top (I-17/ I-40), but this photo was taken on our way across the bottom (I-35/I-20/I-10).  I believe we were still in Oklahoma, somewhere around Paul's Valley as I recall. I was able to take photographs because I wasn't driving for a change. My youngest son came along and provided  good company and excellent chauffeur service.

Because of family ties I have visited Oklahoma many times. The photo in my blog header is a view of I-40 somewhere in New Mexico, taken on the eastward leg of this trip.

That is one big, but lovely tree. Mine did not do so well. This Texas heat has killed everything.

Oh it is so pretty to see the green. August in Phoenix is not my favorite month so this is refreshing. :)
