The SDP staff received a request for a jacaranda post from our favorite Miamian turned (temporary) Texan. How could we deny such a request? Voila! I don't know if it's due to the unusually warm weather, but this year the jacaranda flowers seem to be blooming early.
Typically, I see jacaranda trees in their full spectacular lavender bloom in mid-May. But, already, I've spotted trees that are one-third in bloom or one-fourth etc. Nevertheless, what's in bloom is gorgeous. Spring has definitely arrived in Sarasota when the pendulous blooms of the jacaranda tree arrive. Perhaps there will be a second round of blooms next month!
