Monday Moment

This year  our crepe myrtle took its sweet time to build up for mass blooming glory.  And then overnight, every bud burst. This is one of the best years ever. I took the picture last Thursday.

Alas,  rain and wind this weekend pummels the pink petals.  It will be pretty for the rest of the summer, but not spectacular.

Good luck with your week. Try to not get pummeled by life.

  3. Hi Joanne - it looks amazing and you were sensible to get your photo in early ... amazing tree - I've not been aware of them before, I'm sure I've seen them though ... maybe not as they don't grow in South Africa apparently ... beautiful though ... the gardens will enjoy the rain ... cheers Hilary

    1. Often a bush but you can groom them to be a tree
