It’s mountain laurel time where I live. This is the variety (Kalmia latifolia) that’s native to the eastern United States and grows in the borders of the woods around my house.  It’s also referred to as “calico bush”.  It’s a favorite of mine because of the intricate blossom and the way the blooms unfold from what look like little origami balloons.

  1. That is indeed very special. I like how the background features some less developed blossoms. Haven’t seen any real Origami around here…

    Personally, I like the “fuzz” around the blossom to the bottom right. Are there mountain laurel in Amsterdam?
