Purple Trees and Sometimes Blue Skies

The Jacaranda Trees are in bloom around here. I don't remember them flowering like this into the summer... but nevertheless it's nice to see.


Before I learned they were actually called Jacarandas, I thought they were just our special purple trees. But I found out they also grow in Australia, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Los Angeles...


So for some time now, the skies around the Bay Area looked like this from all the fires taking place in California (it smelled bad too)...


Then miracle upon miracle, we had a couple of days when the sky looked like this...


(Sigh) Now it's back to this...
