Both Pretoria, South Africa and Brisbane, Australia are noted for their streets lined with Jacaranda trees (Jacaranda mimosifolia). In both cities the trees have bloomed within the last couple of weeks and now Pasadena’s Jacaranda are in full flower.  Here are two views of the purple flowering trees along Del Mar in Pasadena, taken from the 3rd floor parking lot of Trader Joe’s.

Looking west along Del Mar in Pasadena. The Del Mar Metro station is about one mile west and Jacaranda trees line the entire length of the street.
