The Tallest Crepe Myrtles

I am giving in to the heat and mosquitos and walking at 6:30 a.m. when our road is empty, cool, and bug-free.  The road is paved and boring after the trails.  I decided to look for exciting, previously overlooked things to draw.  Here, then, are nine spectacular crepe myrtle trees planted all  in a row along the edge of a lawn. They were pruned long ago  so that they grew into trees as tall as pine trees.  Their knobbly multiple trunks are over 5 feet tall before any limbs and leaves and blossoms appear.  I had to cut off the top 10-15 feet!
