"There sure are a lot of those blue trees beside the road," remarked my husband, as we drove out in the spring countryside.
"There's one now. Right there."
"Those are not blue. They're purplish-pink."
"That's what Claye said. Still, they look blue to me."
Turtle has a "red" deficiency color-blindness, so I guess if you take the red from purple that leaves blue.
They're called red bud trees. I wonder why. Shouldn't they be pinkish, purplish bud trees?
Turtle would have called them "blue bud trees."
