Wordy Wednesday

These are my “Mindy” trees (ie Crepe Myrtles). They used to be in between mine and my best friends yard growing up, but the county had to do some work several years ago and dug them up. My brother managed to save quite a few and now they are planted in my yard, my neighbors yard and my parents yards.

They have bloomed so beautifully this year!!

I was playing around in lightroom with them so here are the before & after's.
