Garden event!

The cutting off of the black crepe myrtle that I wrote about a few months ago has graced me with a bloom. 

It had formed buds, but lost them.  I didn't think too much of it, it was tiny after all... still is... but then it managed another bud,  and here we are! 

There are three different color variations in the 'Black Diamond' line of crepe myrtle. Called red, pink or blush.  This, being the palest pink, is the blush.  Which is good, as i didn't like the red, it just wasn't a good red, and I'm so bored of pink crepe myrtle it's not even funny.  

My cutting has a long way to go to reachits maximum size of 10 feet, but he's off to a good start...
