Jacarandas are in Full Bloom
(Pretoria, South Africa)
Jacarandas in Pretoria
Why I love October in Pretoria
The Jacarandas are in full bloom and purple is a mood lifting colour. Driving around I couldn't help but smiled at the colour purple. The colour purple on tree tops. The colour purple carpeting the roads. Its quite symbolic.
Last Saturday, the fine weather sent me and my family to the Union Buildings. Mingling with the tourists there and feeling a bit like one, with my camera I snapped these beautiful purple photos. I'm in love with this city. Not only because of the Jacarandas, but because it is indeed a sophisticated city. Nothing as loud as Joburg yet nothing as quiet as the Cape. Somewhat peaceful.
Thank God for outsourcing the driving, I could take as much photos on the way back home. I'm so grateful for flowers at the moment, even more so the purple ones.
I challenge someone to share their own jacaranda photos.
