The Jacaranda trees are in bloom and they make our streets look so pretty. I smile whenever I see them as they remind me of my friend who lived in Pretoria, South Africa. Pretoria is renowned for her beautiful Jacarandas… they are everywhere and make the city look so beautiful in the Spring. I smile because she once said that seeing the purple Jacaranda trees gave her stomach a flood of butterflies. When I asked why, she replied that the Jacarandas always bloomed when it was time for her to study for her end of year exams at university. I think of her now every time I see them… and I’m smiling now.
Week 17 / 52
Do you have plants that remind you of certain people or events? I’d love to hear the story.
Fifty Two weeks in nature… a series of photos each week to show what our nature looks like. For those who are participating, thank you… it’s been amazing to see how different the seasons are from place to place… and how beautiful.
I hope you’ll participate in 52 Weeks in Nature and leave a link to your site in the comments below so that we can all see the beauty you have found.
