Yes, it's that time of year again in my part of the world.

Jacaranda time !!

Looking back I see that I seem to post about these lovely trees every year

but they are so spectacularly beautiful I just can't let a year pass

without showing you some new photos of them.

Yesterday's weather was cloudy and did not do them justice.

They are dotted around the whole perimeter of this green park in central Ipswich.

The lovely St Mary's church is there in the background.

Part of their charm is the lovely purple carpet of bells spread on the ground beneath the trees.



  1. This has to be my favorite Aussie tree. Glad to see you two got out and about for a walk-a-bout.

  2. Beautiful trees. What do the flowers look like close up?

  3. Those are amazing.How lovely.Thanks for showing us.

  4. Whata fabulous tree! Such a lovely show of colour. I've never heard of it before, but now I'm wondering if one would grow in my cold English garden, lol!

  5. Jacarandas and the Queen....we seem to like the same things :-)

  6. Beautiful trees! thanks for the pics.
