Here in Sydney, Australia, it’s Jacaranda time!
We have a large specimen in our yard, and its glorious flowers are fully out, even starting to drop and form a stunning, purple carpet.
There are many of these trees where I live, and they certainly make their presence felt.
Some may not like them. They’re messy, shedding tiny leaves, and later, flowers (which can be slippery). But for all that, they are still magnificent.
