Jacaranda trees are all over my community these days. They are in various stages of bloom as they blossom in spring and summer. The jacaranda are stunning when in full flowerage, yet messy after their time has been spent and they float to the ground to form an amethyst carpet. (They do look lovely against the shiny black hood of my SUV!)
The purple flowers resemble little trumpets and the leaves are graceful with a fern-like appearance.
The flowers land on cars, and in swimming pools and when stepped on, sometimes make an oily mess. Personally, I don’t care for the aroma of Jacaranda, because it has slight urine-like odor, but I love the beautiful blossoms.
I especially enjoy them when they line up on either side of the street; forming an arbor of vibrant purple and green.
It's so awesome seeing God's Creation. May I never take it for granted!
