Jacaranda trees are in full blossom. Some people feel that they make a big mess, but I love to see my favorite color, glowing in contrast with our city hardscape and nature. I’ll take the mess any day!
The Blue Agave always attracts my attention. Along the bike path at Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California on a warm summer day, here was one complimented by sunlit glimmers through the crepe like petals of the pink bougainvillea. It all came together exquisitely.
