When Melanie moved from Houston to the hill country, I found myself being drawn to the Texas Mountain Laurel. I thought they were just one of the most beautiful shrub/tree. And, their fragrance is just devine.
Yesterday, while in the front yard, I looked over to the flowerbed where mine has been growing for at least the past 4 years. I couldn't believe what I saw. Blooms!!!! My very first. I was beside myself. I even called my dh out to take a look. He was mildly impressed-lol.
They have the most deepest, darkest purple grape-like flowers I have ever seen. So delicious!
This afternoon, if it had not started raining and gotten so cold, I would have gone back out to see how many more blooms had opened. I am hoping that this weather doesn't stop it from coming out full and beautiful. I have been waiting patiently for this day!
May you have a blessed and safe Friday.
