I never realized what a pretty flower this is.
The Mountain Laurel, Kalmia Latifolia, is not only the state flower of Pennnsylvania, where I'm from, but also Connecticut, where I am. It's lovely.
I know this is a short post, but it's raining a lot outside, and I have pretty flowers on my brain. Plus, on a day like today, when so many people are observing in different memorial ways, it's nice to think about flowers instead of destruction and loss.
