I've never heard of these.. or seen them before... I followed the link and read up on the others.. I think it is great how you have a state flower.... I'm wondering now if the county of Cheshire have there own flower..
Great post and it as given me something to look into.

That is beautiful. I love to see these flowers when I am where they are. My problem is I go to the mountains when they look like everything else green.

Hi Barb! Back home and profiting from the holidays, I’m trying to catch up your posts (What a nice week: June 10th, Portugal’s Day; June 13th, Lisbon’s Day - St. Anthony of Lisbon, not Padua… ;)).
Beautiful pictures of lovely flowers. Amazing picture of the power lines. Loved to see the horses and cows as well as your mini-golf field!
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, which is now landed in Santiago de Compostela, Spain! Hope you enjoy, and have a nice weekend!

I am not familiar with the mountain laurel...it sure is pretty...it reminds me of the rhododendron which is the West Virginia state flower....Does it smell?
