A Snap, A Set and A Song - Jacaranda

It's time once again to join with Thea for A Snap, A Set and A Song.

The theme this week is Jacaranda. (Yeah, I had the same reaction!)

Jacaranda  (/ˌækəˈrændə/) is a genus of 49 species of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central AmericaSouth America (especially Brazil and Argentina), CubaHispaniola and the Bahamas. It has been  introduced to AustraliaNew ZealandIndiaFijiPortugal and parts of Africa. The genus name is also used as the common name.

So no, I have never seen a Jacaranda tree let alone had the opportunity to photograph any. But the thing that strikes you right away is the color. (You can go to Thea's site and see it.) Here in the northeast US our trees are displaying amazing colors as well, just different. And that brings me to this week's theme.

  1. Ah well done!! Great interpretation of the theme. I wish we got to see all of those gorgeous autumn colours here. Thanks so much for linking. :)

  2. I just love when trees are going through this stage. They look amazing all bunched together, and the reflection in the water doubles the effect - gorgeous pics!
