As I do each year for July's Bloom Day, crapemyrtles (Lagerstroemia species and hybrids) are celebrated. 2016 finds the trees flowering about two weeks later than normal. Typically they are at peak color in mid-July, but until just recently, we have not had an extended stretch of hot weather, which they need to begin blooming. So earlier this week I took to my bike to see what color I could find, and what follows are just a few very random shots from the west side of Norfolk.
Do you have random shots of something blooming? If so join in the monthly celebration of Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens.
