Mountain Laurel



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I feel the need to see some color other than white around the house. It will be a few months before this mountain laurel blooms along our deck, but I am looking forward to seeing it again.

By the way, I have not seen much white in your blog.

I must have over spilt too much colours from my place.

I got frost bite looking at your header. ha ha on that one. there is nothing like a mountain that is covered in mountain laurel. when we lived in KY, Pine mountain in the spring was a solid mass of mountain laurel. people drove from miles around to look at it and we lived at the base of the mountain, it was our back yard view. thanks for the memories

The mountain laurel is so pretty. I am needing to see color too. The Little River Falls picture from yesterday is awesome when enlarged.

It is gorgeous, George. It must be delightful to see around your house in the springtime.
Wild mountain laurel is always a beautiful surprise while roaming through the woods.
Thanks for sharing the beauty:)

AWESOME! I've never seen this before! Is it considered a wildflower? It looks like the darker pink little cone shaped ones are the buds getting ready to open. I love this. It's so cool that this is actually near your deck! Do the birds like it?

George, I have never seen this plant before, it's so pretty and I would love to see it growing on the mountains.
