Jacaranda season again

It is wonderful to walk home with a carpet of jacaranda blossoms underfoot. Purple flowers cover the tops of these 30-40 feet high trees. One downtown street I visited a few days ago had several along the center. And that was just a side street!

Yes, I love this part of the year here. (I guess it's similar to spring. We're entering the "short rains" - the shorter set of annual rains.)

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog. It's not everyday someone living in Kenya stops by. I love it.

I hope all is well with you and yours!

Be safe...

I love this picture. The jacaranda flower is such a reminder of childhood in Africa, and now it heralds in Summer for me in Australia. The colour is magnificent.
