Sky Watch #59


As always, I want to say thank you to the great team that brings us Sky Watch each Friday.

The weather we have had this year seems to have brought us a beautiful bumper crop of crepe myrtle this August. Here are a few that I have found in the neighborhood on a lovely, clear day with blue skies and sunshine.

What a beautiful flowering bush! I adore that color, too. I'll have to keep my eye out for them because right now I can't remember if I've seen one and recognized it as a Crepe Myrtle.

Thanks for the beauty, my friend. I'm glad you're enjoyed the gorgeous weather!

Love,
Gina

Gorgeously vibrant. Or maybe vibrantly gorgeous. I just can't decide. :)

Crepe myrtle can offer a stunning canopy of colour! Looks wonderful against the pale blue of the sky!

lovely photos, specially the last one where the vague pink in the lower sky complements the pink of the flowers so beautifully
