This spring, the Mountain Laurels (A.K.A. Kalmia Latifolia) bloom profusely. The hillside is dotted with its blossoms, sweeping every square inch underneath the shaded canopy of trees. Its happiest home is in the woods.
Its soft white blossoms gleam in the early morning light like a tide floating back into the ocean. There in the woods, the sea foam of spring. There on the hillside, its soft white blossoms drifting back to its sea.
Enjoy your wordless Wednesday. Today’s quote is one of my own. “When something or someone leaves you speechless, enjoy the silence.” Get out and experience the Mountain Laurels before they fade away. Annie

P.S. I wish I could truly be wordless but, again, there’s too much Italian blood in me. It’s hard to be speechless, let alone wordless!
