June in Los Angeles

June Gloom! The weather that is, when the mornings are overcast and cool and afternoons hint at the blistering fire-season to come. A perfect time to fire up a blog!

It's not all gloomy however, as the season for the magnificent Jacaranda trees extends into the summer. Yes, we all here in L.A. have to hack our way knee-deep through heaps of purple blossoms spilling onto the streets and sidewalks, where they stick to the bottoms of our Birkenstocks, blocking parking spaces and hiding garbage cans. Not to mention creating a glare of purple haze (yes she did say that) sending us careening for our Persols. 

Me? I'm heading for the nearest food truck. Yeah baby.
