Jacaranda Trees





I just feel like blogging and posting some pictures.
Our life is good. We are blessed with so many wonderful things. We are healthy, happy, have good jobs, we have smart kids who are appreciative and respectful. We trust God in our day to day lives and, of course, on the biggies, too. God has given us so many gorgeous things to enjoy.
We have the most beautiful trees lining the street, two streets over from us. They are jacarandas. They have already passed "full bloom" and are now starting to fall. First, they look like a canopy of lavender. Then, they are just beautiful flowered trees and last, they end up looking like a purple carpet.
We love to take walks around our neighborhood and that is our favorite street. These pictures do not do these amazing trees justice. It was getting late and I missed the best light.
