Mountain Laurel Blossom

Thinking of spring/summer today. This is Kalmia latifolia better known as Mountain Laurel, taken while hiking on Cook's Wall Trail, Hanging Rock State Park, Stokes County, NC.

This flower is the inspiration for my third daughter's name. I was always a sucker for "botanical" names!

One year Lew and I stayed at Sky Canyon State Park in Georgia when the mountain laurel were in bloom. The canyon was one huge pink river from the top. We walked to the bottom of the canyon, crossed the stream and went up the other side in this cloud of blossoms. It was an unforgettable fantasy journey. As was our habit we took no pictures and have only our memories. However I am happy there are those like you who do record the beauties you see. BB
