The true sign of summer in Los Angeles…


…blooming Jacaranda trees, whose flowers fall everywhere. I mean everywhere.


My tires popped over them as I drove to meet Hourie for coffee at Intelligentsia this morning…


…nothing for me – I wound up wolfing down a Banana Nut Bread Clif Bar in the car…


…really not pretty. But it tasted rather good…


…beauty that stings or ugliness that sings?

    I love when the Jacaranda’s are in bloom! … right up until you park under one and they get stuck to your car ;) But they really are so pretty!

  • Vegyogini

    Oh, how I love those purple blossoms! Jacarandas are so beautiful and vibrant.

  • Kimberly Dullaghan

    So beautiful!! I love those Jacarandas too!!

  • Emily

    LOVE when Jacaranda’s are in bloom. Gorgeous.

    And, ironically enough, the banana nut Clif bar is one of the only flavors I enjoy- the other ones always leave me with a weird aftertaste!

    • Lynn @ The Actor’s Diet

      You’re right – there was no aftertaste!

    Ahhhh, I miss those flowering trees. You know it’s summer in the midWest when tornado watches are from 8am-10pm….
