Jacarandas

The jacaranda trees are blooming all over the city and they are just as pretty this year as I remember them to be last year. I just love them. They are massive trees of bright purple that brighten up the city everywhere you look. They looked especially beautiful today against a cloudy grey sky. It's raining here and calling for rain all weekend, so no camping for us. It's okay though, I'm happy to spend a quiet weekend working on some of the stuff I'm making for Christmas and hopefully we can reschedule camping soon!
I had to share a couple of pictures of the trees...Steve refers to the pedals that fall as "Australian snow" because they remind him a bit of snow. Maybe it's the way they leave such a pretty dusting on everything. I do miss seeing the first little dusting of snow all over everything at the beginning of the winter season. A snow holiday would be fun but for now I'll settle for the jacarandas...
