They blend in so well with those fluffy clouds in the background.

There's nothing like white flowers against the sky. These are scrumptious.

You often see pink ones, but I love the white. Nice shot.

Oh I do like Crepe Myrtle but it doesn't do well here. It usually doesn't flower because it doesn't stay hot enough long enough. But it sure is pretty. MB

Just a quick one before I drive off west... Crepe myrtles? As in crêpes the pancakes, lol?

Lovely Jacob, you and Lois Anne have a great weekend and week!

Like a snowfall of white blossoms. Beautiful!

Wow! An explosion of whiteness this morning!

Lois said...

Beautiful! There are some blooming at my grandson's school and when we walk under them I shake one of the branches so he can watch them fall. He calls them snow flowers!

Bibi said...

To say those are in bloom is a major understatement! Wow!

Virginia said...

You know it's funny. I just noticed the white ones in bloom all over my neighborhood but the pink and watermelon ones aren't blooming at all. Hmmmm

Ours has been fantastic this year! I think that cold spell we had did something for them. Yours are looking pretty splendid too!

Never heard of crepe myrtles, but I hope they smell as good as they look.

Didn't know their name,
I have to google this I wonder if they are the one giving a nice perfume..
