crape myrtle shadows


please click on photo for more details



crape myrtles seem to bloom at different times depending on where they are located. for instance, my neighbors crape myrtle's across the street bloomed earlier in the summer while a neighbor's blooms down the block are just petering out now. I love how these two are framing this driveway. aren't they beautiful?
I couldn't decide between the two, which one do you prefer?

Oh, Lily, these are so lovely! Hard to decide which one I like best, they're both so beautiful! Terrific shadow shots for the day!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Great job.

Beautiful in full glorious color and also in shadow! And yes, lovely the way it frames the drive. I'm a bit envious, must admit.

Crape myrtle, one of my favorit shrubs, nice choice for a shadow shot.

Stunning. I love these trees. Here we call them "crepe myrtle", with the french spelling.

What a lovely shade of pink! I've never heard of crape/crepe myrtles before! I've seen lemon myrtle trees but they aren't as pretty (they smell nice though!). Hmmm...which photo do I prefer? Difficult choice but I think the second one. Although both are beautiful :) Hope you have a super week!
