Jacaranda Tree

My favorite tree is in bloom right now and I can't stop smiling. Our new town of Queretaro is full of them! I love that this particular tree grew under one of the arches and wraps around the top the old aqueduct (built in the 1730s).

    Hi Genine, I love all your work, your tutorials, videos, everything!
    Would you mind if I used this photo on my blog? I had a jacaranda in front of my house when I was growing up and this photo inspired me to write about it.

    Oh, how beautiful against that wall! I always loved seeing these vibrant trees when I lived in Melbourne, Australia... I miss them.

    here (Brisbane Aust) we have so many of them as well. Our town is covered in jacaranda from November and because it is a hilly city we can see the tops of them in great big clumps. it looks like splotches of mauve paint splattered on a canvas.

    enjoy Geninne.

    We have a beautiful tree called the Eastern Redbud that looks very similar (I don't know why they call it Redbud, because the flowers are similar in color to this vibrant purple).

    Yours is beautiful and very determined to reach the sun despite the structure!

    Amazing shot! Beautiful city! I have been to Queretaro once, it was a day trip from San Miguel Allende, not enough time there. Your photo reminds me to look for my photos of Queretaro.
