‘Tis the season…

…of purple trees (aka Jacaranda blooming season)!

I love how you never know they are there, until suddenly in early November, they all bloom at the same time. They dot nearly every street in my suburb, and under each one there’s a thick purple carpet. They look spectacular! BUT. They are notoriously hard to capture in a photo – they are usually obscured or tucked in tightly between other trees, or not very lush.

I noticed this one on my way to daycare dropoff, and I simply had to stop and take a picture. With an overcast sky and dead, orange grass underneath it looked absolutely glorious!
