I Finally Found Some Mountain Laurel, Almost In My Own Back Yard At Nearby Community Park.
If you had followed my last two posts, you would know I looked for, but didn’t find any mountain laurel, our state flower, on my two hikes last weekend. It was a beautiful evening on Tuesday, the last day of Spring and I decided to hike out nearby Community Park and always picturesque Lake Irena.
The sun was only one day from it highest point in our skies here in Northeastern Pennsylvania and already had ripened some of the low bush blueberries or “huckleberries” as they are know in these parts, growing along the shores of the lake. They
It was after seven p.m. when I decided to leave the park. The sun was still high in the northwestern sky as it filtered through leaves of the trees along the lake. It was a perfect night to end the Spring. I didn’t have to go far to find some fresh huckleberries and enjoy thre beauty of out state flower. You just got to keep your eyes peeled. Here is a link to some more photographs from my walk. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/Community-Park-June-20-2017-
