This sight grabbed my attention on the way home. It is a sawed-off tree trunk with baskets of petunias suspended off the end of each branch. In a way, it appears tropical — something you might find in a foreign country where, as a tourist, you expect the unexpected.
I spoke with the owner of Crossroads Nursery in Deans, NJ. He boasted, “Next year I’m gonna spend $70,000 on advertising. There ‘ll be accidents on the roadway just because of the sheer spectacle!”
I’d say he’s already created a minor attraction by giving us a “petunia tree!”
ISO 100, aperture preferred — opened up one + 2/3 stops to offset backlighting by overcast sky.
