JACARANDA TREES BLOOMING IN SAN DIEGO

Jacaranda trees are blooming all over San Diego now. It’s a breathtaking reminder that yet another year of my life has just flown by. Ah how fast the seasons spin by me now.  It seems like only a moment ago that the Jacaranda flower petals covered the ground in a lavender carpet.  I carry this beauty in my heart.

SAN DIEGO JACARANDA TREES WITH LAVENDER FLOWERS

JACARANDA TREES are everywhere in San Diego.  Whole neighborhoods are filled with these beauties & they are all in bloom now.  In the morning when the coastal overcast sky is gray, the lavender color seems to be rich & breathing with beauty.  As the flowers finish their bloom, the petals will fall & create a lavender flower petal carpet.
