Crape Myrtles in Bloom

        Each year three trees in our front yard, Crape Myrtles, bloom brilliant arrays of white flowers. I love watching the wind blow and the tiny petals come floating down to the ground where they lay and cover the ground like snow! The bark also peels and is really pretty when it does. There are all sorts of colors to the flowers and they can be found all over the place. The colors include light pink, dark pink and purple. I went around my neighborhood last night taking pictures of two more colors of the trees and put them here.
