Wow - the yellow-green of the 'fronds' really makes the lavender of the flowers pop out. And I love the billows you show the branches making. Do you know if this is the same jacaranda (aka 'Brazilian Rosewood') that they use to make guitars?

Would not have thought they were jacarandas, photographed like that. Don't think I've ever seen them so thick and green, either.

I wished we had someone trees here, but such one I have never seen. Spring is far away for green trees and so I am happy can see your pics of flowers and green things...
Servus and have a nice day

Green....I remember green....

Beautiful shots! Thank you for sharing them!

One of my students came back today from a 2 week visit to her home town of Wollongong - she is sunburnt and we are getting nearly a foot of snow in the next two days! I think it was hard for her to come back to Ohio!

Green feathers with dainty purple bows. Gorgeous.

superb! a nice counterpoint to my world covered in snow :)

So lush. I have one pathetic jacaranda in my garden. I'd say it survives rather than grows. One day...

What is so fantastic is about being a photographer is that when lovely patterns like this are discovered in nature that you can capture the moment and savour it .. it has been a delight just looking at this photo today.

So that is a Jacarandah tree. I have never seen one. They are very beautiful. You take great pictures.

Julie said...

That is much appreciated, Bill.

Indeed, they are very beautiful trees and make out city even more beautiful when in full flower each October/November.
