Crepe Myrtle Bloom

Won't you join Madison and me as we finally get a break in the weather and can spend some time outside after work.
Thought I'd share with you this ginormous crepe Myrtle bush/tree we
have in the corner of our patio.
I took a picture of the grill next to it so you could an idea of the proportion.

If we don't keep tabs on it, which obviously we
didn't this season, it will grow and grow and grow.

But I do love the berries and blooms it produces.
Especially since a lot of the landscape is suffering right now.

Purple and green is such a nice combination.

Below is a long shot of a portion of the back yard from our driveway.

It's a little bit o'heaven :)

Hope you are enjoying your week.

I'm joining Outdoor Wednesday.


  1. Ha, Madison looks happy.

    Crepe Myrtles are lovely! Yours is in a nice spot, hopefully it shades you while you're grilling! We have a pink Crepe Myrtle in the front of our house; in fact there are about 20 lining our street. The one in front of our house is just going into bloom.

  2. Crepe Myrtles are one of favorite tree. Most of the time they are all different colors and so pretty. But not this year. Nothing can survive in this heat.
