I guess it must of been 8 to 10 years ago –
We bought three Crepe Myrtles – about three feet tall –
I had to dig the holes on my knees with a garden scoop –
because of the large amount of ROCKS in the ground !
Yesterday as we walked back to the house –
I realized just how beautiful they are –
and the one out front was the last to bloom !
Our house sits on the corner – the other two are in the back –
and they always bloom first.
But this one on the corner – with the green in the background –
just catches your eye when you come up the street.
We are truly blessed – as we really like where we live –
We talk about moving further South-
But we have been here for 13 years !
Over those 13 years – I have planted everything – all the bushes –
The large trees I did not –
And 95 % comes back each year.
We installed a irrigation system two years ago –
after years and years of me dragging hoses around –
It has been a lifesaver –
Most of the lawns are burnt up and brown –
with all the heat and Sun and no rain.
When we moved in – our house was the only one here –
Everything else was built later and we watched it all being done.
Today – they still have a couple more years of building.
They will open the third High School in September –
And our community has been named
as one of the top 25 in the country !
Today we are retired –
Living near our grand kids –
But I still cherish my yard – trees – flowers and plants –
They have become a part of who I am –
Funny – but I enjoy seeing them grow and change !
One day we will pack up and leave it all behind –
But – until that time comes –
I will always look as we are coming home –
seeing the green – reds and yellows –
knowing that we did that –
living my life one day at a time!
