are blooming… not only are they a beautiful spot of color, but I enjoy saying their name … Jacaranda!

So that’s what you call that beautiful tree? Here I thought it was wisteria.

Oh… maybe I got my trees mixed up! Now I’m going to have to revisit this one 🙂

I think you’re right–that it’s a Jacaranda tree. I’ve seen these around and always assumed, because of the color, they were wisterias. We had wisteria in Seattle. All these years in AZ, I couldn’t imagine how a plant that does so well in the wet and mild Pacific Northwest could do so well in the hot and dry desert. Now you’ve given me a name for those gorgeous trees! And, like you said, it is fun to say! Jak-ah-RAHN-dah!

Aren’t they glorious? And then when you see them by the blooming palo verdes, it’s just an awesome experience.
