We were scheduled to fly back to Salt Lake City today but Hurricane Sandy is keeping us here for a few more days. I hope everyone on the east coast rides out the storm safely.

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.
