the circus is in town

i looked outside yesterday morning and saw that the circus had arrived.

when we first bought the house this bush was not blooming. we had no idea what was in store for us the following spring.

it is the coolest flowering bush we've ever seen. still have no idea what kind it is. we will be taking a clipping to the local nursery to see what they say.

we've been getting rain these past couple of days. i love free water!! :)

Shannon, those flowers are beyond beautiful!

Ooh, I love those flowers! By the way, it's called a Mountain Laurel. A guy at the farmer's market told me.

They are beautiful.
And I, too, love free water for the garden. Mine is finally up and growing. :)

Did you know that the Mountain Laurel is Pennsylvania's state flower? How ironic!!
