It’s a bit cold today. The monsoons have arrived and the sun is nowhere to be seen. The sky is overcast with shades of grey, mostly dark and my surrounding has finally transformed into a luscious green carpet. With an over dose of just green, I took a break today to look for this year’s spring and summer finds. After going through a number of Dahlias, Roses, Canna’s, Viola’s, Marigolds and Hibiscus, I found another foreigner shying away as usual.
Meet Ms. Jacaranda Mimosifolia!
A native to South America, this gorgeous tree has found a cozy place not just at the local botanical park, but also in many locals like me. For the past three years, I have see this tree bloom clusters of blue flowers during February and March, but the sad thing is that I have never gotten close to it. The tree’s height made it impossible to view the delicate petals, admire its remarkable colour and also capture it in my lens. Despite the challenge, I managed to click a cluster facing the waters from behind. May be I might get lucky with a better capture and close-up next February. Until then, here is the Blue Jacaranda as the flower of this week. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
