Almost Wordless Wednesday in the Gardens!

When all else fails to bloom in late summer, 
in the South there’s always the prolific blooms of Crepe Myrtles!

Your comments make me smile and I promise to get back to you. I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen or hummingbirds in my gardens.

  17. JdQ, i had never seen crepe myrtles until living in Southern California; however, they bloom more in the Southeastern region of the U.S. in my humble opinion. Come and visit any time that you like; you are ALWAYS welcome friend!

  18. Rebecca, I think that Crepe Myrtles are prevalent in NC too. Yes/No?
    Thanks for always stopping by!

  19. Gorgeous color! I always wished I could grow Crepe Myrtles but the winters are too cold here in the NE.

  20. Beautiful photos… I think I saw photos of Italy on Facebook too amazing … you take the coolest trips thanks for sharing Curt

  21. Pat,
    I had never seen or heard of them before moving to the South too, but alas, we no longer enjoy peonies or lilacs in the spring in exchange. I love them all!

  22. I enjoy the summer long color that ours provide as well. You got some great shots of yours.
