Mountain Laurel in Bloom

Our Texas Mescalbean photographed by txrad today.

We can't actually see it from our house unfortunately. It's on the west side of the property behind some trees. I was wearing Birkenstocks and was getting stuff in my shoe so I didn't walk all the way out there. txrad said it smelled like bubblegum within two feet of this plant.

Maybe the neighbors enjoy it since it's only a few feet from their property line.
