Another Bloom'n Tree
While driving toward mid-town yesterday, I caught sight of this tree out of the corner of my eye. Those gorgeous purple blooms had me so enthralled that I turned around to get a closer look.
I don't recall seeing one exactly like this before so I had to do some research to find out what it is. It's called a Chaste Tree or sometimes Monk's Pepper. Those long spiky flowers appear at the end of the branches.
It was sitting in the middle of someone's front yard so I had to do a little zooming in to get a close-up shot of those gorgeous flowers. I think I might have a new favorite tree!
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns. I'm back at the Huntington again but, this time I concentrate on the masterpieces in the art collection.
