It has been a time of reflection lately, but the jacarandas that line my street remind me of a world beyond my own head. I am reposting this which I wrote nearly two years ago. The trees are still breath-takingly beautiful.
The trees in my street are beautiful jacarandas — one of my very favourite trees. I also have one in my backyard. Really, it is too big for my small yard, but I can’t bring myself to do anything about it.
The jacarandas were out in December and were simply beautiful.
After some heavy rain and wind the fallen petals look a little like purple snow.
