The Crape Myrtle bush is in full bloom, it's flowers will put on this show for the better part of a month.
It loves the summer heat, I have offered it my portion.

How I love and miss crape myrtles. They grew sporadically here and there when I lived in Maryland and much more in Virginia,
but not at all here in Ohio. They are such a longlasting and colorful bush. Thanks for sharing yours.

That is a real beauty and what a lovely lawn you have.

I have noticed that the Crepe Myrtle are really going all out this summer, there are riots of color everywhere. I think I am one of the few that doesn't have at least one in their yard! The city of Florence has lots of them planted. Gorgeous! Yours is a luscious color!

It is so beautiful. It certainly is healthy and apparently needs the heat to keep it glowing.

I love crepe myrtle's and my favorite lately is a deep-deep red one that has popped up in yards. I don't know the name.

Jo, Your crepe myrtle looks like the same "watermelon" color ones that we have. They are very old and very tall and just loaded with blossoms. I don't know the variety as they were at the house when we moved into it in 1985. I do have a younger 'Natchez' one that I love too.
Hope you're having a great Summer,
Babs
