Gaura perhaps? Can we get a pic of the flowers?

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Well my mother in law actually snapped this photo when in Southaven . So I cannot get another- maybe could you blow it up?

Hard to tell, gets kind of blurry when blown up. My guess might be some type of Gaura!

Have a wonderful day!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

The plant habit does look like Gaura (Oenothera lindheimeri). We can try this the other way around since we can't get another pic. Maybe your MIL will recognize this as the plant:
