Across the road from where I live, are two flowering purple trees. According to me they are the Jacaranda- a tree that is native to South America .
It is also native to India because it has a name in Sanskrit too – one that sounds remarkably like the English name .
Could it be a Crepe Myrtle? Or could it just be another variety of Tabebuia?
This set me in quite a tizz and I tried to get up close and photograph the blossoms .
They didn’t seem trumpet like to me and it was far too early to identify the seeds .
Now I know why our parks of old had the names of trees and plants marked on them . What seemed like a fuddy-duddy idea then seems extremely practical to me .
So if any of you can help, I’d be glad to know what is this purple tree .
Happy Mother’s Day all mums and have a great Sunday!
