New tree!


I went to the nursery this afternoon and bought a lovely Acoma crape myrtle. It's sitting in its container in the front yard getting accustomed to its new home. Acomas blooms from June through late September with heavy clusters of snow-white flowers that cause the limbs to kind of weep over ... like a weeping willow or a weeping birch or a weeping holly, all of which I love. It only grows about eight feet tall.

I'm having coffee right now but may go get a start on planting it before dark. If it feels like it.

I have got to have one of those -- a small weeping treeish thing for the chihuahuas to have for shade and resting under during their times of reflection
