The Beauty Of Nature
Photograph - Photography
Tiny crepe myrtle buds have sprouted in preparation for beautiful pink flowers. It is a hot day in late summer. Quietly and peacefully this new little tree brings such beauty to our world. Nature is so very beautiful at every stage.
The crepe myrtles are among the most satisfactory of plants for the South: showy summer flowers, attractive bark, and (in many cases) brilliant fall color make them year-round garden performers. Long, cool autumns yield the best leaf display; sudden frosts following warm, humid fall weather often freeze leaves while they're still green, ruining the show.
Most crepe myrtles in gardens are selections of indica or hybrids of that species with fauriei. The latter species has attracted much notice for its hardiness and exceptionally showy bark. Queen's crepe myrtle, speciosa, grows only in the Tropical South.
I have layered textures over my original photograph.
