Jax Are Here

Jacaranda Trees on South Fairfax Avenue, Mid-City, L.A.
Decorating our troubled City are glorious Jacaranda trees.  The streets are filled with the purple blossoms of Jacaranda trees! Lots of people hate the sticky residue that these blossoms leave on their cars. I don't care, the purple is gorgeous...glorious! In 2008, L.A. Times staff writer, Francisco Vara-Orta referred to these blue/purple flower trees as "purple people pleasers."
The Jacaranda Tree in Front of Our House
When I moved into our neighborhood, almost 30 years ago, many of our neighbors wanted to plant trees on our parkways. We have the widest street in Wilshire Vista...we consider it the center of our neighborhood. Since jacaranda trees are fast-growing, that's what we decided to plant. Many of our trees are now tall and full of flowers. In fact, this has been a very flowerful Spring!

Experiencing all of the beautiful flowers in our neighborhood is a brief respite from the strife felt across our country. Welcome Spring!
