Crepe town

The next wave of color is moving in. The crepe myrtle bushes/trees are blooming. Some people keep their crepes topped so they are like hedges, but ours are free range. The tallest towers over the peak of our roof.  When it blooms, you might never see them unless you perchance looked up.

This photo is of one of the crepe myrtle bushes outside my office at the college. I love this color, but the white ones are nice too.

Not much happening in Empireville this evening so I'm cutting this one short. I hope you all have a remarkable weekend.


  1. Crepe Myrtle - those are huge trees. I received to tree roses for my birthday today so there will be a lot a digging and adding good soil ahead as they receive their new homes. Posted today (as well as yesterday).

  2. Love your crepe myrtle. We have a mauve one, but I lust after one this colour.
    I hope your weekend is wonderful.

  3. Such an exotic bloom. I bet they have an exotic fragrance too. Our climate is too cold to grow them here. Too bad because I would have grown on a long time ago.

    Smiles & hugs,

  4. Free range crepe myrtles I bet those are beautiful in person.

  5. What a beautiful sight ! That's one we don't have hear. Never saw a crepe myrtle till I visited in the south.

  6. Love the spring, we have a new kind of flower bloom every week.
