Yay, an Eddie picture! Glad to see him in such glossy good health. How is Miss Susie Hutchins? Beautiful photos, as always!
Eddie really is 'in the pink'.
We don't have any of those plants here in England (at least, I don't think so!). I was interested to see the crepe myrtles are coming to an end. I have never been in Knoxville in August and so I have never seen these unusual plants come to an end and shed their beautiful blossoms everywhere. I have to admit (blush) that I thought they were called grape myrtles, not crepe myrtles! I thought the tiger lilies were day lilies and an orange colour?Everything so different but so interesting.Blessings, Star
We have several crepe myrtles in various pink-ish colors and I love how the petals flow in the wind ... kind of like snow. No meteor showers for me Vicki ... storms moved in and we got over 1/2" of rain, yeah!!! Still too clouded over this morning to see but a star of two. :o(
ha. they paint the world in their vibrant colors...
Great pictures Vicki! I hate to see the flowers fade but I welcome the thought of cooler weather! XOXO
Love confetti-ed Eddie!
Miss Susie Hutchins says she's just perfect, thank you, Victoria!And so he is, Martin.Star -- tiger lilies and day lilies can both be orange and other colors too. But they are nery different plants. These are the stems of the tiger lilies left after the blooms faded and fell.Pat -- our skies were clearish and just after midnight I saw one little shooting star in about ten minutes of watching. I think I'd rather have had the rain. Brian -- It's like a party!Carol -- A wonderful thought! Eddie Confetti -- ready to rock an roll, Willow!
Wow. The crepe myrtle is beautiful - one of my favorites. Everything is pretty in pink - even Eddie. Love it.
Me and the girls were in a parking lot the other day-and we saw all these bunces of bright pink piles. I knew they looked like crape myrtle blooms but there wasn't any trees. I finally saw some way on the other side of the lot-I guess there was a heavy rain that washed them to the side we were on.
Eddie is adorable! We had a black cat who was so endearing even if he was a bit naughty every now and then. He chased all birds and climbed trees to get them, but his tiny, little bell on his collar gave him away. He never understood why they didn't wait for him. He was killed by a car.
Eddie looks dapper in pink
Always interesting to read your post about plants -- learn quite a bit with each one -- barbara
Aren't they beautiful? There is a tree in my office parking lot that has both pink and purple blooms, totally gorgeous. I hate to see them fade.
Pretty in Pink -- why didn't I think of that for my blog post title! Very good, Deanna!A pink tide, Tipper . . .Eddie's pretty nice, Wil, but like all the male cats we've ever known, he'll bite or scratch if you pat him one second longer that he thinks appropriate.He's a dapper kind of a guy, Suz!Barbara -- Glad to be informative now and then! I've paid a fair amount of attention to plants over the past 35 years. And the nice thing, Lelia, is that even without the blooms, the crepe myrtle trunks are lovely.
