I wait patiently each summer for our crape myrtles to bloom. This is when our front yard looks the best when these huge bushes are loaded with blooms. It seems ours bloom a bit later than most I see around in shopping centers and business parks. I don't know why ours take their dear sweet time, but they are worth the wait.
This shot was taken at sunrise. The sky is blue and the light is perfect. As the day goes on the sky will turn white. This shot looks towards our neighbor's pasture. That isn't all our property.
This is at sunrise facing the other direction.
Sprinklers on after mowing the lawn.
The sod we planted three weeks ago is doing well. It is almost blending in with the old grass.
This side is slowly greening up. This sod looked dead when we planted it, but we knew it would come back with tender loving care. We just fertilized it yesterday and then had a nice rain so it will really green up now.
I walked around in the front yard bare foot after the rain and noticed my two little hydrangeas are getting new blooms on them again. These bushes have really taken off this year after planting them two years ago.
The knockout roses were looking a bit pitiful after a very hot dry spell, but they are starting to bloom again.
I planted the red geraniums that were on the deck in this pot that has been sitting empty.
I had two of these large pots, but the other broke when we tried to remove a dead fern from it. For those new here Mr. Savvy built this wall and steps several years ago.
I hope y'all have a lovely Sunday.
Post Edit: FYI this is your English lesson for the day....the spelling is crape myrtle not crepe like the food.
