Walkers, joggers and bikers on Coffee Pot Bayou have been stopping dead in their tracks this month.

What's happening: The Tabebuia aka pink trumpet tree on the corner of Coffee Pot Boulevard NE and 23rd Avenue NE is in bloom.

  • Its pink petals have made the tree a St. Pete celebrity.

Be smart: The tree is on private property and while the couple that owns it welcomes arbor appreciators on their lawn, photographers should still be courteous.

Go deeper: The Tampa Bay Times talked to the couple who owns the tree and some of its fans during last year's bloom.
