Jacaranda season

20121117_162906

Okay, so it’s not quite jacaranda season here just yet but I couldn’t resist sharing my photo of these beautiful blossoms. The splash of colour jacaranda’s provide to city streets make me feel I’m living in a fairy world. Their soft petals fall to the ground and leave a carpet of purple like confetti at a princess’s wedding.

Jacaranda trees are native to Brazil but were brought to Australia in the 1800s and widely planted around the streets of Sydney and all the way up the coast as far as Brisbane.

Like daffodils herald the coming spring, jacaranda trees in bloom herald the coming of warmer weather and the first hints that Christmas isn’t that far away.

Coming up next, wattle trees in full bloom.

Have a beautiful day,

Molly xx
