My neighborhood is filled with Jacaranda trees just like these and for 10 days every year, the streets are filled with streams of purple petals. I swear, someone blinks a mile away and petals detach themselves and hurl (er...float) themselves to the ground. Where they land on my car in a big, sappy, sticky mess.
I am such a sucker for interesting flower arrangements and centerpieces - so this one from Eddie Ross' blog definitely caught my eye! Adding dark purple grapes is unexpected, fresh and whimsical. I can't wait to try it out with artichokes, or maybe strawberries!
