Mountain Laurel Time

The state flower for Pennsylvania is in bloom now.  More information on the selection of the mountain laurel for the state flower, which is a blooming shrub rather than a typical flower, can be found here. I just enjoy the brief season with the pale pink blooms showing up along the country roads.

      I remember the fields of poppies when we lived in California our first year of marriage. They were always so pretty.

      Thanks for the comment–Cocalico Road, the back road to Birdsboro. There is always a stretch each spring with laurel blooming.
