Hello everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!
I just wanted to sincerely thank all of you who stopped by and left such nice comments about my mudroom fluffin' post. I sure do appreciate all the input and love getting to know all of you gals!!
I wanted to share with all of you the beautiful show this crape myrtle tree has given us this year. About a week ago I did a post about the garden and showed you a lot of our crape myrtles, as well as other parts of the garden (If you haven't seen that post but would like to, you can check it out here.). The crape myrtles were just starting to flower at that time.
This is how the tree looks right now (above)...
...and this is how it looked just one short week ago (above).
Isn't it amazing how much can change in the garden in one short week? I've been absolutely amazed by the profusion of blooms it has on it this year! Crape myrtles actually seem to flourish in the immense heat. It's been between 100-106 degrees for a week now, and THIS is how it responded to the heat (above)!
I still can't believe it went from the way it looks in the above picture to how it looks in the one below in such a short period of time. Mother nature never ceases to amaze me. :)
Thank goodness for the crape myrtles!
They've added the summer color needed in the garden while my roses and lavender are suffering from the heat.
There are so many beautiful gardens in Blogland to look at, so I appreciate you taking the time to let me share mine with you. :)
Enjoy the rest of your week my blogger friends!
'Til next time...
Hugs ~ Jo
