Cycling Claremont: Jacaranda, Jacaranda

The story goes that I used to get reeeaally excited whenever I would spy a Jacaranda in full flower. And that was just a couple years ago, so you can imagine the length my parents had to go to keep me from seeing the Jac's lavender blooms when I was a tyke. Of course we are past the full bloom stage now, and well into the drop stage - streets, lawns, sidewalks and parks are just as purple as the tree canopies.
