The colors of Crepe Myrtles

Here are some of our crepe myrtles.

We only have one purple one and one red one we have numerous of the pink fushia ones and one white one.

I really do not know how many we have but I think it is around 10 -12 of them. Some are big as a tree because they are much older.

I love crepe myrtle time.

Feathers

Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. You have to wonder is this by chance or was it just meant to be.

What are the chances that a feather would land on a flower and stay there?

The wind was blowing but it never blew it away it stayed on top of the canna lily bloom.

I believe this feather is from the underneath back part of one of the black bellied whistling ducks that have been out at the feeders every day.

I photographed it and then I picked it up and brought it in the house.

Barbed wire fences and flowers

Sometimes when you’re taking pictures of one thing you notice another.

This fence has seen its better days but I do not see it getting replaced anytime soon because there is not any livestock on the other side. They use this pasture to grow bahia grass then it gets bailed into round bails.

This is a morning glory bush that we planted years ago by the fence and it softens the look of the falling down fence.

Barbed wire fences, a rotted fence post, and purple flowers seem like a weird combination but they make a good picture.

Purple flower power

I saw this Dahlia getting ready to bloom and I was excited to get to photograph it.

Its color was like a watercolor that was gently fading to the edge of each petal. The edges were crisp and the details were amazing.

Photographing this Dahlia proved to be a challenge since the flower was leaning towards the ground. I tried every angle I could to get to show off this flower.

When you plant things that bloom in your yard then you will always be surrounded by flowers. You just never know what might be blooming that day.

Every time I see something blooming in our yard it puts a smile on my face.
