The purple contrasts brilliantly with the bright green of the young leaves of the Tipa trees. Carlos Thays (my favorite 19th century French Landscape Artist) knew what he was doing when he planted these trees so close together all those many years ago. It is especially stunning in Plaza San Martin as there aren't so many Jacarandas and they lend a surprising burst of color.
I hope you enjoy the sample of some of my photos and the embedded slideshow below. You can see a larger slideshow on Flickr. There is also a photo essay up on The Argentina Independent.
Jacaranda Blossoms - to infinity and beyond!
