Jacaranda In Bloom Around Pico-Robertson

The name of the college yearbook where I grew up in Australia (Avondale College in Cooranbong) was the jacaranda.

I love this purple flower and it blooms twice a year in Pico-Robertson for about a month each time.

Particularly south of Pico Blvd, these purple blossoms dot the sidewalks and when they are fresh, they even crackle under foot.

The one downside of the jacaranda is that they tend to stick to the bottom of your shoes and they are easy to track into your home.
