Mountain Laurel


The mountain laurel is in full bloom at Nipmunk State Forest,
 a 9,000 acre forest in Northeast Connecticut. My DH and I visited this week. 

Each flower is one bowl-shaped petal that has 10 indentations, each with a red dot. 
I love these flowers.


While there, we met this little fellow. He peeked out of his shell like this, 
but wasn't taking any chances.
