My family moved into a new house in 1954. I was in fifth grade. I inherited the house in 1982 and am still living here. My Mother planted a crepe myrtle that is still here and we love it. However, in the back of the lot there was a plant that started to grow when we watered. We kept cutting "this weed" it out. We forgot about it at one point and it kept growing. It turned out to be a beautiful crepe myrtle. It is still growing. One year (probably in the 1960's) I gave my Mother a crepe myrtle for Mother's Day. It might have been this one. We even have home movies of her bringing a flower from the bush. All I know is that the crepe myrtle in the back of the lot was determined to keep living and it will be as long as my family have the property. Carol Swinehart Swanson in Sacramento CA
