When the weather forecast is cloudy with a chance of Jacarandas,
even the most ordinary day, complete with a to-do list and endless errands to run,
becomes something wonderfully magical.

Trees lining so many Santa Monica streets burst into magnificent
lavender-purple bloom for a few weeks each spring, delighting residents
and tourists alike with their exotic color and fairy bell-like flowers,
and showering passersby with falling blossoms.
There's a carpet of purple underfoot and a spring daydream of a scene overhead.

That's the gift of the Jacarandas...
And I'm ready with open arms and open aperture to receive it!!

HappyFriday!!
Love,
