My favorite trees.....

Those who live here are familiar with them. The purple trees. The Jacaranda_Mimosifolia.

I will have one of these one day!

(I also want one of its first cousins, a Mimosa.) Here's a picture of a Jacaranda-lined street, where they are in full bloom.

I just love them. I don't care what anybody says about how they hate to sweep up the purple blossoms.

I still want one!

Those are lovely trees....wonder if they would survive our winters? I can see why you would want one - and if it were me, I would leave the little purple pieces on the ground to do the "green thing", don't you know? Once they dry a little, you can put them in your handy-dandy composter you showed us!

I love them too but I won't take my car within 100 feet. ;)
