It is hot! And one of the few positive things about the heat is the blooming of the Crepe Myrtles.
Crepe Myrtles come in many colors, and are used in some areas of Southern California as street trees. The one you see here is a smaller variety called: Pink Pagoda, I love the fragile texture and soft color of the blooms.
I have two, the one you see here in the front and another in the rear garden next to the pond.
The flowers are so pretty but really not good for cutting...alas, I have to enjoy them where they are.
Although it is only July I am already longing for cooler weather and...rain! How wonderful that would be.
Thank you for visiting.
