Crimson Crepe ~ Alphabet Crazy

Sharing a bloom from one of my Crepe Myrtle trees with Alibb’s Alphabet Crazy Challenge. We all go at our own pace with the ABC’s in this challenge. I am posting this week using the letter C. 

These crepe myrtles were planted in December. Their first year has proved very successful. All three trees are blooming. Always relieved to see plants and trees survive the first year. A good sign. 

And they will return each year, growing taller and more blooms for the hummingbirds and butterflies.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Great flowers! You have a great garden.
    I am enjoying the end of August. Picked a lot of plums today. Apples are falling off the trees and the deer are so pleased by plums and apples. I need to freeze a bunch of blackberries soon.
    The Wooden Boat Festival is coming, and I’m debating about traveling to the National Heirloom Expo. Hope you are enjoying the last of summer!

    • Thanks Howard, we did this sort of thing growing up. Dear always around, canned fruit, figs, peaches, and berries in the freezer! Good memories. And this is a great time for festivals. The weather will start to cool soon hopefully. I am enjoying lolling forward to no more heat. It has been a triple digit summer. I prefer cool or even cold any day!
