[Editor’s note: The crape myrtles are blooming at my parents’ house in Richmond so I was happy to receive this group of colorful photos from my step-dad of the varieties and colors that are in full bloom around their yard. Enjoy!]

    Thanks for using the crape photos. Waiting for the sun shine to be right on a partly cloudy day tried my patience. Your camera probably would do better justice to the true colors than my PIX 3200. YLSF
