I was amazed to find Indio full of Jacarandas in bloom - hands down my favorite trees. I grew up in Brisbane, which is flooded with bruised rain every September; you cannot look in any direction without seeing a smudge of blue-purple in your field of vision. There is a saying there that if you haven't started studying by the time the Jacarandas are out, you're fucked. Matt had to pull over to let me get out and verify that, yes, there were indeed true-blue Jacaranda trees blossoming in California in May. I always thought they were Australian natives, but it seems they were originally found in Central and South America and the West Indies.
