A   L   O   H   A !
How to Capture the Glory, the FEELING 
of Jacaranda in Bloom?

“We all have a tree 
inside us. 
Finding it is just 
a matter of time.”

" Do not follow 
the ideas of others, 
but learn to listen
 to the voice within 
Your body and mind
 will become clear 
and you will 
realize the unity 
of all things. "


a Complete Masterpiece!

" You can't be suspicious
 of a tree, 
or accuse a bird
or a squirrel 
of subversion or 
challenge the ideology
 of a violet. "

"As the poet said, 'Only God can make a tree,'
probably because it's so hard to figure out how to get the bark on."

The jacaranda is so beautiful! Seeing the full-sized tree in a verdant setting was a delight for the eyes.
