Mountain Laurel

The heat of June coaxes mountain laurel, one of our most spectacular woodland shrubs, into bloom. Ordinarily the woods in this area of Connecticut look bare, deer having browsed the landscape clean, but when the mountain laurel's light pink flowers open, they brighten shady trails and make the woods seem like a garden.
