Texas Mountain Laurel in bloom on Lady Bird Lake
by h. gillespie
I noticed the first Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora) blooming this weekend on a walk around Lady Bird Lake. Look for this gorgeous native shrub and its sweet-scented flowers all around town. This one is near the spiral walkway of the Lamar pedestrian bridge, on the North side of Lady Bird Lake. One of my favorite late winter/early spring blooms!
