The pics are displaying fine for me.
In my neighborhood, I, too, see the way the Crapes are bent down from the weather. It's as if they were hit with an ice storm in July.
I gotta say, though, we have had so many mid-summer droughts here. Not this year, though!! And everything in my garden is LOVING IT! As soon as the ground dries out on top -- RAIN. All summer, it's been that way.
The down side - and there's always a down side - is what this is doing to the mosquito population.
On a perhaps related note, I am seeing a real uptick in yellow jackets this year. I got stung July 4th by one and killed one yesterday. Not sure why they are in the ascendancy this summer, but there it is.
Oh!! Before I forget. LOVE your Needle! It's greening up nice. My two Needles are lookin' real good. As are my 2 Minors, 1 Trachy, 1 Birmingham and 1 Palmetto. A mild winter followed up with a wet summer has all of these plants smiling.
