Snapshot, Week 27, July 5 -11 Summer Pow

Creype exposion

A rod weed before it goes into full chandelier-head excess.

Purple Thistle throwing fur.

My passion! (See earlier passion flower post)

After several weeks of little to show (too hot --or on the road) we return to Snapshots (July 5-11) with fewer but powerful offerings.
While many of of the field flowers have wilted or dried -- The Black Eyed-Susan's are toast, some flowers really take to the heat. Crepe Myrtles --in White, Pale Pink, Hot Pink, Grape, and dark Magenta --are like no year I can remember. (Nice thing about growing older; last year may have been as intense, I just can't remember;)
