This is the only pink tabebuia in town that is blooming...and I'm not sure why, as blooming season is not for at least a couple months away. I'm so surprised that it survived last week's near-freezing temperatures and the ongoing dry conditions. But, it just goes to show you that you really never know what might happen...despite the statistics or the generalities.

We often need to look at the 'majority' or the expanse of the bell curve to draw conclusions and even make decisions, but we will really be remiss if we don't consider the non-norm, the graph tails, or the 'minority'. There are just too many considerations of individual nature to confine us to looking only at the 'average'. Allowing for personalization and the characteristics outside of the norm is more time-consuming and takes more energy as well, but the rewards provide a true human (and not robotic) perspective of our world.
