      Thank you! I was hoping a gardener or botanist would stop by; the flowers’ configuration is so odd. It’s even odder than I thought! The stamens are like little catapults. A mechanical flower.

      • Well, I’m not a botanist for sure! Mountain Laurel is the state flower of Pennsylvania where I live. When we hike, we see a lot of it in the forests. It looks exactly like what we call Mountain Laurel, but I could be mistaken.
        Your photo is beautiful.

          No – you’re absolutely right! We have them all over here in Western North Carolina, too. I mostly notice them in the winter because they’re evergreens. I had just never looked at the spring blooms up close before.
