Doesn’t that sound like a children’s story title? The Flower that Doesn’t Belong?
Like The Ugly Duckling?
Botanists would have a cool explanation for this. Me? I just think it’s the neatest thing ever. I have never seen this happen on any of the crepe myrtles. I’ve seen this happen on variegated privet that will suddenly sport no variegation on some branches and other such things. But this? Never.
I was actually taking a picture of the desert willow flowers in bloom, which surprised me too. They’re supposed to come out when we have a summer rain shower. No rain showers for the past two weeks, and been near 100 every day. So when I was taking the puppies out, I suddenly noticed flowers! And had to capture them. It’s really, really, really windy out, so I had to hold the branch, hoping that I could get a good shot with my phone, though the flower was still shaking, but I thought it turned out well.

And then I saw the crepe myrtle where it wasn’t supposed to be. I have pink, red, hot pink (watermelon), but this caught my eye.
Red crepe myrtle flowers with one pink flower
Isn’t that the coolest???
I’m not very good at holding a phone in one hand and taking a picture when holding the branch in the other in high winds, but I thought it turned out well, despite the handicap. What do you think? And best of all, his brother flowers are just as happy that he is there with him, sharing the same branch.
And another great review for SEAL Wolf Hunting!!!
“True love triumphs over all!”
SEAL WOLF HUNTING is a fun, sweet, and character-driven romance. The passion between Lori and Paul gets hotter and intensifies as their feelings grow and become stronger. One of the strengths of this book, as well as this series, is the tight-knit relationships between family and friends. I love how the members of Lori and Paul’s pack support each other and watch out for each other. As always, I look forward to the next book by Terry Spear. Reviewed by Miranda Owen

SEAL WOLF HUNTING is a steamy page turner! Author Terry Spear has another winner with this one as she continues to bring us her bestseller Heart of the Wolf shifter series. The story if filled with down to earth characters, a lot of humor, laughter, sizzle and suspense, making a perfect storyline. Right from page one the reader is thrown into the plot and it continues to build from there. The dialogue is in turns hilarious and serious just what you expect in a couple that are being pushed to be together. Paul has to make a decision that he doesn’t even realize he has already made, just needs it drawn out of him. He is sexy, tough, smart and sensitive to those who belong to his pack and family. Lori is perfect for him; she is also sexy, tough, smart and sensitive. She wants to give everyone the benefit of the doubt but she won’t be walked on either, not by anyone … including Paul. I loved how she took up her role and was there for the pack when Paul had to leave, proving that they are a concise team that could work together for the better of their people. SEAL WOLF HUNTING is already on my TRA shelf and I can’t wait for more!Reviewed by Annetta Sweetko
