Jacarandas flowering in upcountry Maui means springtime

Every year I am blown away by the beautiful colors of the flowering Jacaranda trees upcountry, and mostly in Kula.  The purple flowers really stand out against the backdrop of the blue or gray skies, but it's not so easy to capture a good photo.  I love the effect of the spilled petals on the ground making a purple carpet.

I took a drive out the Kula Highway to Keokea and Ulupalakua just to admire the trees.  What a great day it was, and so worth it.

Also of note at this time of year are the baby peaches.  Who would think peaches could grow on Maui?  These one were found at the Sun Yat Sen park in Ulupalakua where there are a few trees which were probably planted by some Chinese person.

That is a very pretty tree. I like the idea of purple flowers. I would love to see a close up of one of the blooms.
