Jacaranda Walk

Here in the southern hemisphere we are in the latter stages of Spring, getting ready for the heat of summer. If you are thinking Spring means tulips and plum blossoms, you can think again. Here its Jacaranda season. The landscape is dotted with splashes of purple from the giant flowing trees. Although I had a lovely quiet, non-digital (almost) Sunday, I did think of you. I went on a Jacaranda walk and took a few photos to share with you.

      Glad you liked the photos. Spring in Australia can be quite dramatic with the strong colours. I am looking out for the purple and red trees side by side. Thats really the best! I will post an occasional glimpse of summer time over the next few months to keep you warmed up.

      Spring is like that. I look forward to it every winter, but some years the hayfever gets out of control. Thats the beauty of photo’s!
