It's just now in bloom in NE PA. Have yours blossomed yet?
Starting to pop out up here in northern MA, not yet in its full glory.
Yes, this is a good year for mountain laurel blooms, but they are more evident in direct sun than buried in the forest. Certainly a nice show of them along Lake McDonough where we go walking a lot. There was a giant clear-cut along the west side of the lake a year and a half ago and the laurel is very showy right now.
