Queen Crape Myrtle in Flower at St. John’s University!

‘Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower’, so said the butterfly in the Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales…..

So today is a wonderful day to see the flowering Queen Crape Myrtle (紫薇花) otherwise known as Pride Of India, Banaba or Lagerstroemia Speciosa outside the multi-coloured Mechanical Engineering Building here at St. John’s University…

Beautiful flower, beautiful day!

  1. Hi Catherine,

    I can understand it’s called the pride of India. It’s a nice bright colour….

    It gives sunshine on this grey day in Oxford ☺
