The lilac giants

Oh, how I love the sight of a jacaranda in full bloom. Their lilac flowers are as beautiful carpeted on the ground as they are when still hanging from their branches. The majesty of a mature tree in all it's glory is just one more reason to be thankful for the seasons. We may not see all of the seasons all the time, but I like to think that the jacaranda is Mother Nature's little reminder of spring. A splash of vibrant purple to our dreary brown landscape!

I'd love to capture that colour and use it somewhere in my daughter's room, but somehow I just don't think I'd be able to do it justice.

    I think of all the colours of nature the colour of the Jacaranda tree is the most beautiful! from Mum
