August 13: A couple of changes for late summer . . . - Richard Rothrauff
This has been a great summer so far.  My yard seems quite happy with the amount of rain we've had.  The summer bloomers continue to do their thing.  The Purple Magic crape myrtle was the first of the three in this area to bloom this year.  It did so in mid-June, which means it's been sporting purple flowers for a month now.
