Add to that the gardeners in vehicles, gawking, peering, and visualizing.
And causing no end of havoc.
Admit it, you too have stopped traffic, slowed down, or pulled over with out proper signaling to stare at something that caught your fancy. We are gardeners, we love plants, of course we are distracted by their beauty.
It might be a beautiful dogwood tree, or the hot cherry pink magnolia. Or maybe it is a orange rhododendron in full candy tuft bloom.
“Slam on the brakes, can that really truly be the color of those magnolia’s”.
Do gardeners cause traffic accidents because they are always gawking at plants?
“Oh, go around, don’t mind me, I just need to check out that tree!”
Can you just hear the gardener in you explaining to the police why you dented that parked vehicle, “but officer, it was a cherry pink magnolia.”
“I’ve never seen one before.”
Now unless he is a avid gardener, I think you would be in trouble.
There are only a few, because they are very rare, and so beautiful, purple Paulownia trees in White Rock. I know the location of each and every one.
And when they bloom in early May, watch out, because this vehicle brakes for beauty.

It’s full of the blues.
