The “Purple Splendor” of Jacarandas! ~~

I absolutely love Jacarandas. They are stunning when they bloom, and Los Angeles is full of them. Some people, especially those who live around Jacarandas, cannot stand them. They complain the flowers make a mess on sidewalks, streets, yards and patios and are an actual hazard. I understand their frustration because our Rosewood is equally messy. It blooms in June/July and its tiny yellow flowers are impossible to deal with. But we manage. Anyway, since I love Jacarandas, I tried to catch them in Beverly Hills where some streets are lined up with hundreds of trees, making what they call a “purple splendor.” Unfortunately, most trees were flowerless. They’ve either fallen or have yet to bloom… I’ll continue to look for that “purple splendor” but, in the meantime, here is a taste of LA’s Jacarandas._DSC0442_edited-1
