Blooming Friday

I know, I know. These photos were technically from last weekend and they are not where I live. They are more photos from Alabama. I probably will have a few more posts that have Alabama photos in them.

Beautiful crepe myrtle blooms.



We saw crepe myrtle everywhere but this particular specimen was at the hospital where my nephew was born.



I love the bark on these trees.



The next photos are all in my sister's father in law's yard. First we have this very bright azalea. I love the pinks in this bloom.



Penstemon blooms with pulmonaria in the background. There is also what looks like a baby oak tree coming up at the bottom.



Not really a bloom, but can you see the mistletoe mixed in with the rest of the leaves on this tree? I will give you a hint. It is the dark colored area.

Crape Myrtle is a beautiful tree. And you're right, the bark is beautiful. Your shots from Alabama are really interesting.

The crepe myrtle flowers looks like the tree in front of my home. I agree with what Rosey said, we don't care where you took the photos. The important thing is that you took the photos and I love photos, photos, photos in the posts. I have enjoyed your travels too, Jackie. Keep up the posting.

Oops, I'm sorry for the typo error, my dear Jessica. It was really meant for you. A thousand apologies. I think my fingers cannot coordinate well with my brain.It is 5:45am here now and I am really really hungry.
