Magic carpet

Changes of season may not be as dramatic in Mexico City as in northern climes, but they definitely exist. This is a jacaranda tree. It flowers briefly in Mexico City, beginning in February. By the end of this month the lavender blossoms will have disappeared.

This is what the street looks like when the blossoms fall. That’s why this is my favorite season in Mexico City.

    Nifty — and lightyears from 7 East 12th.
    Buena suerte.

    I believe Jacarandas are not only poetic, but extremely telling of the sound of the De-efeños.
    We flourish whenever there is only a little heat, a little light, and a little water.
    We need little to live on; marginalized from what other call “a healthy way of life”, in D.F. we just survive and shine when we get a little something in our dire existence…

    Felicidades por este espacio, compadre!
