Cityscapes in Bloom

     If you wander around New Orleans streets this time of year (and I do) you will see a profusion of soft purple, deep magenta, and soft white cloud-like blooms, waving from slim linen-papered tree trunks that swing-low-sweet-chariot (which means they brush your shoulders- I’m trying to be cute and failing).
     They have no fragrance, but they do have style.

     Behold the Crape Myrtle
     Long may they reign!
