Springtime Comes To Maui

You know it's Spring on Maui when the jacaranda trees begin blooming. The flowers on these trees are the most phenomenal shade of violet, and when the petals fall to the ground as they eventually do, we call this the "purple snow". This jacaranda tree is a baby, and I will continue searching for mature trees in full bloom. They are breathtaking to behold.

I never really think of "Springtime comes to Maui"...guess it seems like every day there is Spring or Summer.
Beautiful photo though of a very beautiful tree!

That is lovely. I don't know if I've ever seen a jacaranda tree before though I was in Hawaii once in the summer. Perhaps the blooms were done when I was there.

Breathtaking indeed. I had NO idea you had Jacarandah trees where you live!
They also grow in much colder climates and the blooms are magnificent. I love this shot.
