Skywatch Friday #5: Summer Lace

Sky Watch Friday

With the coming of fall, the tiny blossoms you see here begin to drop away, but on this day, they stood out like diamonds against a backdrop of unblemished blue.

This look like white crepe myrtle, is it?

Nice blue background.

Beautiful white flowers against the bright blue sky.
Lovely shot for Skywatch.

I wasn't sure, so I just went and checked it out. And judging from the bark and what's left of the leaves I'd say you're right. It's not the variety of Crepe Myrtle I'm used to though... the blooms are different. But it's at least a very close relative.

Nice catch!

They are lovely and fluffy, and look wonderful against the blue of the sky.

So pretty, Mojo. You still had such lovely blossoms in October? I'm jealous. ;-)

Hi Mojo, I have the odd blossom on my Myrtle, however, the rain make them go over so quickly.
Lovely picture reminds me of what to look forward too in the Spring. Thanks for sharing.

It looks fragile and beautiful against that blue sky -- ah, I'm already looking forward to spring, but here in the northwest, that's a long, long way away! Thank you!
