The crape myrtle trees are beautiful this time of year.
These trees are very fast growers,
and the blooms last from summer through fall.
They thrive in warm climates and are very plentiful here in the south.
You see them everywhere you look ~ in front yards, along the streets, in front of businesses, in the down town, in the parks, in gardens, and along the highways.
This one sprouted all by itself several years ago on our front lawn next to the driveway. It seemed to be at a perfect spot so we left it grow. It now stands about 18 feet tall and it's beautiful.
Enjoy your day!
