Crepe Myrtle.. Delta Blush(ing)...



Oh la! Look at this beauty, j'adore! Spotted the flowering Crepe Myrtles in the Woodside Plaza garden, Hay St. side.. so much gorgeousness, they even have a slight delicate perfume, who could ask for anything more :) I'm not 100% sure this is a ' Delta Blush' but if you click the above link it does seem the closest in colour. I've had a few summer casualties this year, the hot temps are harsh on plants in the full sun, but according to the info the crepe myrtle thrives in these conditions, guess where I'm heading today, I have just the spot for a lovely such as this! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe... p.s. My heart goes out to all in the South West town of Yarloop who have lost their homes in the horrific fires this week and to the firemen and volunteers continuing to fight the blaze.

  1. Even in México when vegetation can get very lush in season, I'd have to look long and hard to find blossoms that are this gorgeous! The close-up shot is gorgeous!

  2. That is a beauty. I hope you get one perfect for your house. Sorry to hear about the fires down south. I did a quick search as saw some very devastating photos.

  5. The flowers of a crepe myrtle look so lovely en masse. I grew up with these beautiful trees in the family garden and in neighbours'gardens in Sydney, but I haven't seen too many on my Mornington Peninsula.

  6. I noticed the first Crepe Myrtle starting to bloom a couple of days ago. Your plants are always so ahead of ours.

  15. It is snow on the ground, very windy and COLD where I am, so it is just fantastic to see these sunny "summer" images from your place. Happy Sunday to you and yours.

  16. Beautiful blossoms Grace, such a contrast with here, although it is not so cold 6 degrees C (42.8 F). Those bushfires are very frightening and devastating for the people who lost everything.

  17. Grace, the crape myrtle has a lovely, sensual pink flower. Scent, too? Be still, my heart! (Sorry to read about the wildfires out there.)

  18. I haven't seen a crepe myrtle tree or bush since we lived in America. Lovely to see them again and this is an especially vibrant one. I can vouch for them thriving in hot conditions which other plants struggle in.
