Keep Your Camera Close

As several of us will agree, it is worth keeping your camera close when moving around on errands or puttering in the yard.

Crepe Myrtle trees flourish in our thin, rocky, Central Texas soil. It is a multi-trunk tree with blooms that are either red, soft pink, bright pink, lavender, or white. I have two, one on each side of the front walk way.

I do not know what this flower is called, but Sam's had several buckets of fresh cut ones on sale. I am always fascinated with flower arrangements that use only one or two of these. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think these are native to Hawaii.

Switching gears, I saw this wonderful purse pass by me as I was eating a piece of pizza at Sam's. I look forward to getting a Sam's pizza when shopping; it is a total bargain - $2.89 for a huge piece and a huge drink of your choice. Anyway, back to the purse, its owner and I posed it. She bought it at Ross for $9.00!!!! (I'm kind of into animal print purses at the moment.)

Wow! Don't you just love a bargain? BTW, come across any good bargains that you want to tell about?

Until next time, God bless.

Your flowers are lovely! We planted crepe myrtle across the front yard last spring and a couple had blooms this year. We have one has white blooms on one limb and pink on another. Odd.

I never find bargains, I think they hide from me.

In Oregon I severely miss the crepe myrtles of Texas.

I've got crepe myrtles in my landscape beds, but the rabbits chew them down each year. They come back, but it takes forever for them to bloom :(

I'm glad I'm not the only one who takes pictures of stuff in stores. I was at Target & got a great picture of shiny pink piggie banks for next week's "Distracted by Shiny Things" meme.

The crepe myrtles are so pretty, a part of the south I miss.

That purse is to die for, very on trend. Oops, do I sound like my teenager?

The flower on the second photo is called anthuriums, Lynn. My Dad grows them and it's one of the most expensive and sensitive flower in the country.

Oh oh the zebra purse lemme have will go well with my zebra scarff.
