I know that I have posted pictures of the jacarandas in previous years, but I can't help but take more and more photos at this time of year.
I did a bit of reading about the jacarandas and found out that they are native to South America. At the beginning of the 20th century the governor of the state of Veracruz took a trip to Brazil and saw the flowering trees in Rio de Janeiro. The governor took some seeds back to Mexico... and now you will see them throughout much of the country.
I could tell by the leaves that this is an oleander bush. For some reason, you don't see many of them in Mexico.
The azaleas are pretty, but they do not seem to bloom as profusely as they do in the U.S.
Springtime... a beautiful time of year to be in Mexico City!
