Jacaranda time


Santa Ana, California
14 May 2013

The jacarandas bloom this time of year and again in September, but in May, they're a sure sign of summer. While this photo doesn't do justice to their gorgeous purple blossoms, it gives you an idea.  Yesterday, when I parked on this street to wait for the daughter, they were just bursting into full bloom. Today, the street was littered with their sticky flowers, and I was tossing them back out the car window as fast as the breeze was blowing them in. Whole avenues are lined in these trees, and for a brief time, you can drive through beautiful lilac-colored tunnels.
