I have never had luck with crepe myrtles before. Looking at these blooms up close makes me appreciate it even more. So delicate. Almost like tissue paper. That lovely yellow center really pops.
I stayed out until it heated up then headed in to clean up and cool off. Unfortunately the day took a turn for the worse in the garden. A terrible thunder storm with high winds swept through. It doused the garden with a shot of water. It turned the daturas inside out. Quite a feat since they are so tough.
The worst part is that it broke a big limb off of the apple tree. The little family of House wrens had quite the ride no doubt. Their little abode was askew. They must have survived alright because I saw one of the parents taking a fecal sack out of the nest.
Luna won't be able to make her usual rounds until we get the limb off the pathway. We are lucky though since it didn't damage the fence. I hope you all are safe and sound after all the storms running across country.
