Purple Confetti

Ah, summer begins this Sunday, but we are still celebrating spring- here's a photo and story from Gayle about the beautiful purple jacaranda tree: We're coming to the end of the season of the jacarandas blossoming. This is fast becoming the favorite streetside tree in San Diego -- despite the fact that the blossoms are very messy, leaving their resin behind on parked cars, and staining sidewalks and carpets. We forgive them because they are so beautiful. Searching for a different way to photograph them, I saw this puddle of blossoms scattered through the shadows of the tree branches above.

My favorite tree. Have about two dozen of them on our five back country acres. Some are in full bloom and some are about half in bloom.

A beautiful photograph. It reminds me of a charoite paperweight, but the hue here is slightly more blue. It is good of you to see this; and to bring it to others in your work.
