Faith is not certainty so much as it is acting-as-if in great hope.
Indeed. After the flowers are gone, the sister tree will have to be pruned, as it is beginning to block our way into the carport.
oh wow! how beautiful! my favorite tree/shrub of all time. wish they grew up here!
margaret, once the flowers start to drop, the ground is covered with what looks like pink snow from a distance.
--and up close, they remind me of some kind of lacy thing my grandma might have had around her collar!
Vive Mme. Myrtle!
Mary, what a lovely comment. Mme. Myrtle. I love it.
They are, as you know, pretty resilient.
Yes, that's true. I knew the tree would come back, but I was surprised how beautiful it is after only five years.
Our crepe-myrtle is blooming in Cali, too. Nothing quite as spectacular as this, though.
What color are the flowers, JCF?
