Pennsylvania's State Flower, The Mountain Laurel, is in full bloom all over the countryside right now and boy is it gorgeous.  If you get the chance go drive down a few backroads or a nice lush area and you are bound to see it. I passed a few spots today that had so much Mountain Laurel in the area that the woods appeared white. It was a very nice site to see.  Considering how much rain we have had lately I was afraid that it would all totally be washed away before I would get a chance to go see some and get some pictures.

The Mountain Laurel became Pa's state flower back in 1933.  Its flowers can be either white or pink and I got to see both today. It's leaves are poisonous and so are its blossoms. It can grow to be 30 feet high in the right areas.  I did see one plant in the woods today that had to be at least 7 feet tall and about 6 feet wide and it was in full bloom. It was on private property or I would have gotten a picture of that one for you too.

Get out there and see some!

Thanks Megan! It's so weird to basically just traevl up Rt6 in Hawley and it's like being transported elsewhere. The property is amazing. Definitely find the time if you can, even if it's just to experience the spa. You can use the spa without staying there. Seriously Tension Tamer massage was AMAZING!
