Crepe myrtles, Ponte Vedra Beach

Crepe myrtles are wonderful trees. They provide interest year-round. In the spring and summer they have a lovely vase shape with lively green foliage and, later on, beautiful lilac-like flowers (sadly, with no scent). In the autumn and winter they reveal their delicate architecture and interesting seed pods. The top ones are planted near one of the Publix markets on Palm Valley road. The bottom on is one of thousands planted in Nocatee with a future road behind it.

It's interesting how the red signs in the background get an almost tree-like character with help of the perspective and framing. For a millisecond I thought them to be some trees, too.
