Mountain Laurel

Yesterday the mountain laurel blooms were still tightly closed and rusty.
I was sure they wouldn't open until this weekend.
But today we had a heat wave with the temperature
reaching 90 degrees.

That was enough to get the mountain laurel's attention,
and by evening, the white blossoms were full and open.
Beautiful May.
