I love the purple jacaranda blossoms that cover the city this time of year. Some complain about the sticky blossoms that fall, but it seems a small price to pay for such a startling display of purple. Here in LA we have entire streets lined with the trees and it is a bit surreal to suddenly turn down a street that looks like the Wizard of Oz or other Technicolor film.
Billy2U on YouTube posted this cool video and even included a recipe for eggplant hummus at the end, just to keep you in the purple mode. (LAUGH)
