The whelming abundance brings out the ADHD tendencies in us all. We flit from flower to flower and page to page in our field guides. As a few of us bend over a new specimen, we hear a shout, "Hey! Come see this!" The group breaks apart as some of us cannot resist running across the road to check out another plant. Every now and then the warning, "Car!" awakes us from deep concentration taking us away from petal counting and leaf measurement long enough to step off the narrow pavement.
A dark bluish purple larkspur draws my attention. "Over here! Look at me!"
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.
