One of the pleasures of a new place is the thrill of unfamiliar flowers as each season arrives. The Lowcountry is awash with crepe myrtle in the summer months, big frilly blooms hanging heavy in the thick air.

The poet Cathy Smith Bowers writes:

such Popsicles,
these crepe myrtles,
to cool the day’s,
parched tongue!

I took these from our back yard into my studio and was delighted to find find some of the tiny flowers suspended from spider webs. As I hung them against the black back drop they became another poem of sorts.
