More wisteria can be seen at black berry creek (lovely photo, BTW).
Meanwhile, I drove to American University to work on my statistics group project & took the Macarthur Blvd. along the Potomac River to Loughboro Rd. in Washington, DC route, so I was able to pull over safely for these photos of my mystery purple tree.
To give you a sense of their height - note the electrical poles in the background.
close-up of the blossom - no leaves yet.
This one shows how you see the purple/blue against the green leaves of the other trees.
So you can see that it is not wisteria - a vine. & I doubt that it is Jacaranda either... (everything that I have read has the Jacaranda's growing in a different region, i.e. Southern California... & besides these purple mystery trees are not messy.) Does anyone know what this tree is called?
The Potomac River. In the fall, I answered a meme that asked about something that suprised me... As you can see the river is hidden behind the spring leaves - in the fall after the leaves fall, you can see the river without having to get out of the car and zoom in on it - so it is a suprise in the fall eventhough you know it is there all along.
Stashbuster topic of the week... Your dream quilt... WOW boy is that a loaded question. It kind of makes meed need to admit that I want to be doing more complex piecing or something, huh? So I will answer this one fairly honestly... My dream quilt is the one that uses the last bit of my stash! :o)
