Crepe Myrtle

We have a giant crepe myrtle tree in our back yard. It has a thick trunk, thicker than I think I’ve ever seen on this type of tree, and branches that extend over a great deal of our yard. During the majority of the spring and summer, everything is covered in a colorful confetti of varying shades of delicate pink flowers.

It’s especially fond of dropping them all over our swimming pool, which while annoying to have to skim out, can make for some beautiful photos.
