beautiful blooms! are they fragrant? never seen, or heard of, the jacaranda. I've never been to the west coast, can you tell? But want to badly. One day.


Beautiful. Is this tree in your yard?

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

It is my second favorite tree. Laura's pear blossom being the first. When we flew in from Tucson last month, Laura and I were spotting them from the air as we landed in San Diego. They are everywhere and lovely and made us very happy. Pear blossoms grace January birthdays and Jacaranda announce the summer.


Beautiful! And a lift for my own spirits today.
Thank you for sharing. <3




Wow, that is lovely and I've never seen one. Thanks!


That is beautiful. I've never seen that before.


GORGEOUS! that would lift my spirits as well.

There are so many things that cannot, will not grow in Minnesota. I would pass out if I awoke to that beauty out my window ...


It would be like a vacation every morning to open my eyes and see that out my window. It's beautiful!

OMG beautiful! It looks HUGE in the picture, how tall is it?

Oooh, and I love saying the word "jacaranda" too. Looks and sounds pretty.


That is wonderful! I haven't seen one before. Is it yours?


How pretty. They probably could not survive up north... They are just lovely!


Cool! I don't know if I've ever seen one before. Or if I have (when I lived in CA), I didn't know what it was.

OH! I had forgotten them - they are soooo beautiful!


We have a huge an soooo gorgeous right now because it's in bloom jacaranda in our front yard, but, let me tell you, it's the MESSIEST thing... we track blooms all over the damn place.


Wow.. that's beautiful. I've never heard of it before.. now I want one!


I have never seen this before - spectacular!


Gorgeous tree, just lovely.


My favorite, too. There is a street full of them in Pasadena and it looks like you are driving through a purple cloud.


Me Too! I think they're absolutely amazing.
