Mop heads of purple that line Marengo in South Pas or California near Lake, and dotted here and there on El Molino…carpeting the sidewalk, littering into the street, and polka-dotting parked cars.

During this second blooming, we recognize botanist, horticulturalist, and landscape architect Kate Sessions (1857-1940) who is known as the “Mother of Balboa Park” and is credited for importing and popularizing the jacaranda in Southern California. We thank you with all our heart.
