stop and smell the grape kool aid
Spring has sprung here in Austin. It’s a special spring because last year we skipped spring and went right into summer. We also skipped precipitation so there weren’t any flowers. A spring without flowers? I know. A travesty. This spring is making up for it. We’ve had rain galore. So much that the Mountain Laurels are blooming everywhere! They have such beautiful shades of purple and vibrant green leaves. My very favorite part of the Mountain Laurels is that they smell like grape kool aid. Not kidding. I made Dylan get out of the car this weekend to go smell them. I’m not sure he appreciated it but I like to think he was glad he smelled the fragrant aroma of grape kool aid.
