Blooming Jacarandas Welcome Spring to Southern California
It's not true that Southern California is seasonless. There are those almost-annual disasters that mark the passage of time in chaparral territory: late summer fires followed by mudslides. And then there's the blooming of the jacarandas each spring, which is less of a disaster (except for its sticky sap) and much more photogenic. We found a few beautiful shots of local blooms and took a few of our own in West Hollywood.
