Jacarandas in Bloom

Pin It
"Jacarandas in Bloom"
Oil, 11" x 14" framed.
$950.00 at SoPas Gallery.

As I drive around town there are "hints" that the jacaranda trees will be in full bloom soon. the trees are slowly showing signs of purple and I know within a few weeks they will be in full bloom. There are a few streets in South Pasadena that offer a sky of purple blossoms. When my oldest was in high school and I would take him to morning swim practice (at 4:30 am!) we would marvel at how the streets were covered in purple blossoms. The jacaranda trees are messy, but the beauty they offer all of us makes it all worth it!

How absolutely beautiful and atmospheric! We also have jacarandas in South Africa. Here it is an alien no longer planted, but the big ones give such a lovely show! You have truly captured their spirit!
