Did I mention crape myrtle trees? It's hard not to think of them when they line so many South Pas streets. Jacarandas may usher in the season but crape myrtles stay way past the curfew. In fact, they turn late summer into another lingering spring -- blossoms last clear into September with shades of dark pink, red, white and occasionally lavender.
This one outside Shakers seems to be looking back toward Mission Street, where many others are also blooming.
