I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Also Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Muskogee') which matures to around 20 feet.

That looks closer. I really don't know Crepe Myrtle but respect Dave's opinion.

The bloom does look more like Muskogee. Zuni is a deeper purple while Muskogee is lighter in shade. And, of course, Zuni is a short tree up to 8 feet max.

The Zuni I saw was a small tree or shrub. Crepe Myrtles are not common here......

Muskogee it is! Thank you Dave. Thanks Paul , for trying --- you got close.
Okay, in just a bit, I'll be off to the db to post the photos & also fill out the missing parts of the data details
