Spring Flowers

The beauty of Spring!

My favorite time of year. We've only had a % of our average non-drought rainfall, but flowers and trees are blooming like crazy. I've seen trees blooming, that I don't remember blooming at this time of year.


Crepe Myrtle's in Full Bloom!

The Beautiful Colors of Crepe Myrtle TreesWhat I love most about the August and September is all the beautiful Crepe Myrtle trees are in bloom. Here in Southern California, the city plants them in the many of the parkways. They are so pretty when they're all in bloom at the same time. There are many colors to choose from. I've seen Red, Lilac, Light Pink, Dark Pink and Purple. They originated in AsiaCrepe Myrtle Trees and once established, they need very little water.
