Texas Mountain Laurel

I managed to get out for lunch today and what a gorgeous day out there. Our dreary clouds and fog are gone and it’s all sun and warmth. Car said 81 degrees on the way back.

Just outside the door of our office building is a Texas Mountain Laurel in full bloom. Check out the picture to the right. Aside from just looking good, the great thing about these small trees is the scent they give off. Read the link above and they describe it as smelling like grape Koolaid. Well, I don’t know about that, but it’s definitely fragrant. Too bad there’s no scratch-n-sniff here.
