Have you ever seen a Texas Mountain Laurel in bloom? These southwest natives are simply amazing, with pretty purple flowers and an unbelievable aroma. They smell exactly like grape soda!
I can't decide which is prettier: the full-blown flowers or the delicate little buds with just a hint of purple peeking out. What do you think?
We have two of these trees, one in the front yard & one in the back, so the delicious fragrance is adrift throughout our whole lot right now. I wish this blog was in Smell-o-Vision so you could experience it for yourself.
