Jacaranda

jacaranda
May in the desert usually means the arrival of hotter temps, but the one thing I always look forward to in May is the blooming of the Jacaranda trees. The beautiful purple blooms eventually fall to the ground and can make quite a mess, but this one is in my neighbor’s yard so I don’t need to worry about it!

The jacarandas have really bloomed out in the last couple of weeks. This one certainly has a nice shape.

Have a great day.

I love the jacaranda trees - tho we don't own one, for just the reason you said! Nice colors!

Oh, I love Jacaradas! I've only seen two or three in Tucson, but they were quite common in southern California where I used to live.

Pretty tree! That makes up for not having lilacs blooming there.

I love Jacarandas too. I used to love seeing them when they were full of color.

Like you I love jacarandas in other people's yard! We used to have one in a former house. What a mess!
