    Last Saturday in Salisbury, Connecticut it was in full bloom down low, but just starting to bloom up on the ridge. By this weekend it'll probably be in full bloom up high.

    Interesting discussion since I am currently in Tiverton, RI and there is Mountain Laurel blooming in abundance at the Weetamoo Woods Preserve in the uplands along the shores of the Sakonnet River (it's not really a river but the eastern sound of greater Narragansett Bay). The woods encompass an original 1681 "Eight-Rod Way," a cobbled colonial road.

    We're lucky to have a lot of mountain laurel on the hill behind our house and it's been poppin' for the last week.
