Crape-myrtle with Two Colors and Moon;

*Crape-myrtle (blooms  in  summer) with Pink and White color*
 In the middle of this month from three houses, Crape-myrtle with two colors♪
Crape-myrtle, we call this flower "百日紅、サルスベリ. saru suberi"
These two Japanese names have different context even if we call both characters "saru-suberi".  First Chinese Character means "redish for 100 days" and second one means "monkey slip" due to the tree sap.  Although dictionary said not exactly so, this tree does have slippy skin.-:)  And I'm introducing PINK color for Friday's Hunt meme.



Coincidentally, the owner of this house and the 3 dogs were inside the garden.
She kindly allowed me to take pictures of her babies as well. 

Pink one from different house.
The name of the tree was put beside the tree for the kids to be able to read. The old owner told us that he used to be a school teacher


White one from different house.










*Moon for the Sky Watch link from 20th*



We've been busy with helping public procedures for our relatives, my cell-phone and eye trouble, soba guests etc :-)  From tonight, I'll try hard to visit you.  So sorry for my absence.  Planning to see you here in a week♪

Howdy Miyako!
We don't have any Crepe Myrtles in our yard but boy they sure are beautiful and wishing we did. Each week you provide us with a bit of knowledge which I appreciate. I like learning something new each day if I can. Those three dogs are really photogenic.

Hi, Miyako san. Your Saru suberi flowers are so pretty! They look extra beautiful with stunning blue sky in their back! We have very similar looking trees in our subdivision. One tree with white flowers and one with reddish, visible from our deck. I never knew the name but now I think they might be Saru Suberi :-)

旦那様の伯父様がお亡くなりになったのですね、大変でしたね。心からお悔やみ申し上げます。Miyakoさんも旦那様もお身体大事になさって下さいね。I wish you a beautiful weekend xoxo Tamago

Fabulous! The crepe myrtles are gorgeous and that moon shot is so clear. How very sweet of your neighbor to let you take photos of her babies. They are adorable! Great post Dearest Miyako, and thank you for once again linking to Today's Flowers. I wish you a very happy week and I do hope your eye problem is no longer an issue.

Hello Miyako, I love the sweet doggies. Pretty crepe myrtle. Lovely post and photos.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Miyako,
Aha, we do have a lot in common as the crape myrtle grows here very beautifully in Georgia, even along the Interstate they planted them.
We have white and purple ones and first the big white one was alongside the driveway.
Because of the very sticky tree sap, from the flowers that got on our cars and was nearly impossible to get rid of. Also on the tiles of our balcony. The dripping is the waste or "honeydew" of small insects called aphids. But we have it now growing in the lawn, behind our gazebo where the sticky stuff cannot do any harm.
Love your puppy photos, they way you frame them in is darling.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Smile - didn't know that about the monkey slip! The crepe myrtle is so beautiful - can't choose between the white and the colored blomms. Many thanks for sharing them with SEASONS! The moon capture for Sky Watch is stunning! Have a great week and "see" you back very soon!

Crape-myrtles are so pretty. I love them -- until they start dropping their leaves into my pond! It keeps me busy and moving! So sorry to hear you are continuing to have eye problems. Love the moon! Happy Monday!

Hello Miyako
We have been out of touch for most of summer and I envy the gardener who can grow crape myrtle, pretty flowers but not adapted to my Canadian zone.
The 3 sweet dogs were nice to share as well.

Pondside said...

I have been inspired to try to grow Crepe Myrtle here on Vancouver island - it is so very lovely. You certainly have lots of choice where you are, with the pink and the white. I hope that things settle down for you soon - don't worry about visiting and commenting. Those are things for more leisurely times.

riitta k said...

Hi Miyako! Crepe Myrtle is prtetty and fascinating - but cannot be grown here in Finland. Thank you for letting me admire its blooms here. Have a lovely week!
