It's July and that means the beautiful crepe myrtles are blooming!
Most crepe myrtles have a gorgeous watermelon red color
but some are pink. This crepe myrtle is a few blocks from
my home and I admire it every time I drive by. Crepe myrtles
are beloved in the south because they provide two essential
elements, beauty and shade. Can't live without either!
Southern Living has a great web page on growing crepe myrtles.
And if you think crepe myrtles are magnificent now,
just wait til fall when the leaves turn colors...my oh my!
