Mountain Laurel

*****
I really like these delicate little flowers that grow on an evergreen shrub. They are used as ornamentals and tolerant of shade and fire. Older specimens have been reported with up to 100 growth rings.

These things look almost unreal...like they're made out of paper. So beautiful, though.
