I suppose I am a bit of a homebody. One of my favorite places is my own backyard when the crepe myrtles are blooming. Over the last few weeks, they've been dropping petals, leaving a carpet of hot pink covering my lawn. The local curmudgeon of a squirrel likes to sit in the crepe myrtles and fuss at me, so I took a picture of him one day used Kuler to extract some of the colors.
