I’ve been meaning to share my love of Jacaranda flowering season for some time now … and with the blooms starting to appear in greater abundance on the ground instead of on the trees, the time now seems long overdue.
From September to November each year – the backyards, streetscapes, parks and gardens in Queensland are transformed with a showy display of beautiful iridescent purple blooms.
Standing beneath a Jacaranda tree that is overburdened with flowers is a dreamy experience … The canopy above provides imperfect, yet beautiful cover – like a lovingly handmade crochet blanket, used to wrap oneself comfortingly within. The ground underfoot becomes awash with a random scattering of fallen tubular flowers … forming something as bright and mesmerising as a land-based coral reef.
A magical time of year indeed … I hope there’s magic in your world too.
