Garden Tuesday – Crepe Myrtle

Crepe Myrtle

Remember back in May when I said that it was the law for Southerners to have Azaleas in their yard?

Well, now that we are further into summer I remember the other law. The one that requires Crepe Myrtles. I have always been a law abiding citizen.

    I,too am a law abiding citizen! My Crepe Myrtles always bloom later than everyone elses for some reason. Probably the gardener.

    Pam – These are southern laws I can support! Common, yes. But, they are absolutely beautiful in every color.

    I really like Crepe Myrtles. I think they’re so pretty when they’re lush and full. My gram’s house has one out front. It’s lovely.

    blessings and gorgeous piccies!

    My neighbour had a charming pink crepe myrtle which grew over our fence. As a child I used to delight in sitting underneath. The petals would fall like fairy dust whenever a gentle breeze blew. Happy memories.
