The Joy of Jacaranda trees

One of the things that first struck us when we arrived in Sydney were the amazing purple trees that could be seen around the place. Although not native to Australia, Jacaranda trees can be found all over Sydney and really stand out with their amazing purple blossom. Sometimes, when the wind blows hard, it looks like purple snow falling to earth.

I don’t really have much to say about them other than I think that they are awesome!

  1. They are marvellous indeed. We love jacarandaes in Buenos Aires, they grow everywhere and children sing songs about them (though I never knew why they state the petals are light blue). Expect an amazing carpet of purple flowers anytime soon!
