Bloomin' Beautiful!

Here in northwest Florida, summer has been in full gear for months, and temperatures and heat indexes have been in the triple digits for weeks now. I feel badly for those in the north and northeast who are still waiting for summer to arrive. How I remember shivering through the long, harsh winters that sometimes continued on into cold springs and summers. For those in the north, there are only a few precious months of warmth to enjoy, and it's not fair to be cheated out of those... Hopefully some of our heat will arrive there soon!

Anyway, while I don't think Florida can rival the the beautiful spring blooms that follow the cold northern winters, the south's beautiful azaleas and Crape Myrtles are really lovely. Every year our pink Crape Myrtle gets bigger and more beautiful. Here it is, currently is at its peak!!
