silk tree

this is from a beautiful silk tree. there are a couple very near my home and they are so pretty when in bloom and have a very delicate scent. they bloom in summer.
the little bug I found completely dried (poor thing!) possibly because of the heat wave we had earlier this month.

oh yes, they're gorgeous! I remember as a little girl in my first year of school there was a bush that grew right outside our classroom and when it bloomed we would wear the flowers as rings... such beautiful jewels I don't think have been matched!
