Crape Myrtles

I am joining Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday and Tootsie Time for Flaunt Your Flowers Friday.

It is hard to believe it is Thursday already. The weather in East Texas has been so nice for the last couple of days. We have actually had rain and cloud cover to give us a break from the hundred degree days we have been having.

I have the most beautiful crape myrtles. This pink one is outside my kitchen window and it is so pretty. I have not seen one like it. The blooms go from light pink to darker pink.

This is a smaller one, but it puts on a beautiful show.

I love that each tree is a little different.

This purple one is a dwarf, it is loaded with blooms.We have moved it several times just because it did not do very good where it was planted. Now it loves where it is. I move plants and trees like I move furniture.

The white crape myrtle limbs get so heavy with blooms they just fall over and the tree looks like an umbrella.

This one is pale pink.

I live in The Crape Myrtle City, We have so many beautiful trees growing around town.
