Jacaranda Sunset

Jacaranda Sunset

While I was in Pasadena in May I loved seeing the flowering Blue Jacaranda all over the city. On a visit to the hills of Rancho Palos Verdes one day I was disappointed at first that the Jacaranda were not yet in bloom. Later in the evening, though, I thought the silhouette of this tree with its feathery leaves was quite beautiful.

A beauty from The Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. The Huntington Rose Garden is my second favorite rose garden in the world after Queen Mary’s Gardens in London. The variety and quality of roses at The Huntington is stunning. More Huntington roses to come.
