Our Beautiful World - Purple

When I saw that the ladies at Our Beautiful World had Purple as their word prompt I immediately thought of our Jacaranda tree when it blooms in the spring.  We planted this tree almost two decades ago precisely because the blooms were so beautiful.   We've lost a few branches in storms over the past couple of years and we don't have a St. Bernard dog to sit in the fallen flowers anymore, but I still love looking up out the transom windows in the spring and seeing our beautiful purple blooms.

My version of Purple.  Why don't you stop by or join the fun over at


  1. Oh, that beautiful purple of the Jacaranda tree! We don't know this tree in The Netherlands, but I saw them in full purple bloom when I was in Australia in 2009.


  2. Oh lovely Jacaranda! I envy you a bit :)

  3. What a lovely tree. Wow. And that blue sky behind it in the second picture really makes it pop.

  4. I always saw these purple flowers tree and wonder what they are, glad I learn it here, thanks for sharing with us at Our Beautiful World!


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
