Crepe Myrtles


The crepe myrtles in my neighborhood are now at their peak!





Here are a few I spotted this morning on my walk.














If you're interested in learning more about crepe myrtles, the current issue of SOUTHERN LIVING MAGAZINE, August 2010, has a great article which includes tips on growing these lovely plants and different types.













Crepe myrtles are near and dear to a Southerner's heart.

I love crepe myrtles - I always wanted one in our yard but my husband thought they were somehow kin to oleander and the accompanying caterpillars, so no crepe myrtle for me.
