I recall the first time I stepped onto the Kenyan soil in July last year, the first tree that caught my attention was the beautiful Jacaranda trees. When in full bloom the entire tree is purple. Not a single green was found on the tree. It was like a purple torch that lights up the streets of Nairobi.
This year, perhaps it's due to the weather change, the bloom came only in late September early October (or at least this is when I noticed them).

Thanks for sharing - I'm sure it's quite a spectacular sight in person!

Enjoyed reading your posts about Kenya. I am headed there in late June for 2 weeks of volunteering in Kibera. Given the extreme poverty in Kibera, I doubt that I will be seeing the same beautiful sites that you saw when you were In Kenya. Prior to my time in Kenya, I will be in Egypt, just for fun and adventure. My 4th trip there in as many years. If you would like to read about my time in Kenya, pls. go to (I doubt I will do much blogging while I am in Egypt, because I will be on the move too much to tote a computer with me.)
