Jacarandas

It is springtime in Pretoria, and we are right now being treated to the most amazing display of Jacarandas. The city’s streets are lined with these trees, and for a few weeks we live in a purple world that smells incredibly sweet. Towards the end of their blooming, we usually get the first rains of the summer which washes away the flowers; purple rain!

A purple world
