Purple Passion, Nature’s Way


Jacaranda time, Harare, Zimbabwe

Jacaranda trees in full bloom

I have just come back to autumn in Ireland, after spending a month in the sunshine of Southern Africa.   It’s  coming into summer there, and I miss the warmth of the sun and the beautiful flowering trees, especially the lilac jacarandas which are in full flower right now and looking amazing.   Even when the blossoms start to fall and the new leaves start, the pavements under the flowers are covered in purple and lilac petals, and it is like walking on purple snow!     What a beautiful sight these trees are in the sunshine.

    Jacarandas are spectacular. We went to Pretoria, “The Jacaranda City” yesterday and also saw some of the rarer white jacaranda trees.

    The Jacarandas are awesome no matter how bad things are in reality, the beautiful blossom just make you smile. A friend from home sent me a beautiful photo of one of my street in Harare looking beautiful. Nature is does its own thing which is a blessing.
    Thank you being so positive about my country which is feeling under severe economic problems.
