California: Those fabulous purple trees (Jacaranda) in Venice
By:Sarah in Venice

Large Jacaranda trees on Appleton Way in Venice, early June. To me, they looked surreal because I had never seen purple trees before. I used to ride my bicycle on that street every day on my way to the bicycle path of Venice (the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, also called the strand"). It was a pure delight to ride under those huge trees on a beautiful sunny California day.
