Crepe Myrtle Mornings

I love to look out on the backyard first thing in the morning. I turned the pups loose a bit ago and as they scampered about…I notice it had rained crepe myrtle blossoms. Crepes myrtles are my favorite flowering tree/bush of all times. They thrive in the heat. Their flowering stems look lovely in an old wine bottle on the front porch. But mostly, they remind me of summertime at Grandma’s house. β™₯  Crepes can bring smiles and surprises.  Happy Monday!

  1. Nice but I could have done without the spider even though it has a lovely design. Can you see the goosebumps on my arm as I type this? πŸ˜‰

    Great photo of the spider but I’ll admit I croaked, “Aaaagggghhhh” when I scrolled down on him.

    A lovely way to begin the week… I love crepe myrtles too, but not warm enough where I live for them to thrive:( However, I can drive about 25 minutes inland to Solvang and see them on almost every street! Thanks for the beautiful photos this morning:-)

    • A fav around here because of the heat tolerance. Our son gave of a new variety (not pictured) that are doing really well. They are black diamonds. The leaves are dark purple…almost black and the blooms are red. So pretty. But they are in the front yard….I was back porch sitting today. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you can at least see them on a regular basis, Jeannette! πŸ™‚

  4. ahhh summer [happy sigh] Love the photos!

    Oooh..loving the spider and her web – cool shot! Love the crepe myrtles too…they are all over where I live also – and thrive and blossom in the heat here! Had a HUGE one at the old house, and a small one at the new house…love it!

    I love my crepe myrtle – it’s that last pink before the leaves turn.

    Nice! I miss crepe myrtles, but here in Canada they just won’t grow, not like in Texas!

  11. Your photos are ridiculously beautiful. Spider and all, they were so nice to view. I love Crepe Myrtle, too, they hold up well in the heat around here.

    Your back yard looks so beautiful and restful, although I do prefer my spiders to remain hidden. πŸ™‚

    Summertime at Gramma’s house indeed! Oh the beautiful memories!

  16. I love crepe myrtles (even though I don’t have any – yet) and also love those garden spiders – so pretty – both of them!
