The view from here...


I took this a in May...a few days later all of the pink flowers were replaced with new leaves. 
Such a shame as these trees look so nice when they are in bloom!


Have a fabulous day!

We have lavender blooms on our crape myrtles surrounding our pool and they are so lovely! I'm sorry your blooms didn't last!

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets

Crape myrtles are in full bloom here in Austin. I love to see the pretty colors as I drive by.

This picture is so pretty. I just love love love the spring and summer months with so many trees and flowers in bloom. Unfortunately, I have a houseful of allergy sufferers!
PS...is this even a Crepe Myrtle? I never knew they grew in Canada....I'm in PA and mine haven't bloomed yet. Whatever tree it is, it's beautiful!

What a beautiful tree. I wish many flowering trees and shrubs would hold their blooms just a little long or even rebloom.

I love this pink and green photo. The hills (mountains?) in the background are beautiful.
