San Diego County is home to many native and non-native plants and trees. Besides the dense California sage brush, the many types of cactus, and the annoying, ugly eucalyptus everywhere you look, you can be lucky and find some gems, especially during blooming season.

I still have a to take a great picture of a jacaranda tree (it will have to be next May or June) but in the meantime, I’d like to share these beautiful tree blooms. I actually have no idea what type of tree this is but I love the bold pink flower clusters that cover it in the spring.

May 2013 update: thanks to one of my visitors, I found out this tree is called a purple robe locust. Just beautiful!
