I have been on vacation, in Austria, Italy and Turkey, (the AIT Tour) seeing some of the most beautiful gardens! But, when I returned this was what was up in my garden and some garden spaces around town!

The crepe myrtles are the flowering trees of the South. They come in white, light pink, lavender, dark pink and red. The white ones bloom first at the beginning of July and the red are the last to bloom at the end of the month. Read about the crepe myrtles HERE.

The post office got a new garden too! There is also a new flower! For my British friends I believe the official name is Stopsignias Atthepostofficeiere. I refer to it as the Stop Flower. Enjoy!

    Joan I am soooooo far behind in the telling of my travels! The crepe myrtles bloom in the hot, hot, weather of summer here and then when it cools down (to the 70’s) in the fall the whitish colored bark begins to peel in long strips from the tree, revealing a smooth as a baby’s bottom reddish brown trunk. The tree is absolutely beautiful year round. Some people prune the tree way, way, back (it looks awful) and we call that crepe murder!
