Crape Myrtles are so beautiful, however, they do not bloom for a long period of time and before you know it, they lose all the beauty and turn green again.
A good example, I was impressed with and took a photo of this beautiful tree in my neighborhood when it was in bloom, and then again I walked by and photographed it about a month later, when all the blooms were gone.
Lucky for me, the other day I was working on my daily walks and saw another neighbor trimming the lower branches of a similar tree. I quickly approached her to ask if she could share some of the branches with me. She ever so nicely agreed. Then, I thanked her and indicated that I was planning to work on my second Crape Myrtles indoor arrangement with her tree branches. She was surprised and told me that she never thought of making a flower arrangement from tree branches, smile. Furthermore, she was happy to know that the branches she was removing were not going to the trash. Win, win situation.
