You know spring has arrived because the Jacaranda trees (pronounce the J as an H) are blooming. "Spring" means temperatures like the one we had last Saturday-30°celcius. It's starting to get really hot, and the Jacaranda starts flowering like crazy. These are one of the very few trees that loose most of their leaves during "winter".
As you drive along the streets and avenues, you see expolsions of purple color here and there between other trees. These trees grow pretty tall. The flowers fall pretty quickly, and the floor all around them turns into a beautiful purple carpet.
Enjoy them while they last.
My Aunt Irma had eyes the color of these flowers.......beautiful!
