Jacaranda

In Australia, we don’t have snow. We don’t have snow men, snow flakes, or snow angels.

During this time of year, our trees and roads are not covered in white.

They are covered in purple. The most spectacular display of dazzling, light purple.

I know Jacarandas grow all over the world, but to me, the sight of those gorgeous purple tree tops dotting the horizon can only mean one thing – Christmas is near.
