Photostudy Today: The Crape Myrtle Flowering Trees by: brendasue

Welcome To The World: 
Come in and visit Kates Cabin On Rainbow Creek, A Private Bird Sanctuary in Northern Waller County, Texas, USA, Earth.  
I am brendasue and I try to bring you my photoArt of the livings things around Rainbow Creek.
A little mini-Nature Class on a Page. I began this book for my grandchildren to learn the things living here with me at Kates Cabin.
I feel it is a good idea to photodocument the Nature around Your Place. I try to give you examples to look at from different points of view, to give you ideas for taking your own photos. I encourage you to get involved with a camera, take a few lessons, and head out on your own adventure into the world around you.
You can take a good photograph with most digital cameras. If you want to take great photographs, you will have to begin upgrading your camera equipment and knowledge. 
Personally, I am happy just to remain a beginner. You have your choice to go whatever direction you want to go into The  Photography Hobby. Good Luck. Have fun and share what you find with all of us!  There is a great network of like minded people sharing their photography, experiences, gardens and tips on the internet. Join us and write History!

Heavenly Blue Morning Glory    by:  brendasue

These are beautiful delicate flowers, but Beware planting in your flower beds. Very aggressive and the vines will kill other plants.  I planted mine in the woods and watch them from a distance. Hummers love them.

Ballerina is Back                    by brendasue

I remember this bird from last year as she does not drink from the inside of the ports, only around the edges of the port! 
Welcome Home 'Little Ballerina'!  (She just got here today. They are slow coming in this year, compared to last year).

Hi Everybody!        by:  brendasue

Let The Class Begin!

(Thank you, Little Ballerina)

'Twilight' Crape Myrtle Flower At Twilight         by:  brendasue

Our Photostudy today will be on a Flowering Tree named the Crape Myrtle. These trees are popular for their panicles of colored flowers with crepe-like texture. 

Shedding the outer Bark       by:  brendasue

These trees differ from most other trees because they shed their outer layer of bark as they grow. When the bark gets too tight, it splits and pops off of the new bark that has formed underneath it.

I am mixing up the flower photos with the shedding bark photos so you do not get bored!

These trees grow in the south of France,  all of Italy, Asia, Australia, India and other warmer climates.  They were brought to the States in 1790 to Charleston, South Carolina.  Since then, they are all over the south (generally south of zone 6).

This concludes our photo study today on the Flowering Tree:
Crape Myrtle.  You can discover more information on these trees at the link below:
