Jacaranda City

Jacaranda City

The closest town to where I live is Grafton also called Jacaranda City. Generally late Oct. to early Nov. the jacarandas are in full purple bloom. This year though the streets are already swathes of purple and it is only mid Oct. Avenues of the purple trees brighten up the streets and we have our Jacaranda Festival with the crowning of the Jacaranda Queen in late Oct. Hopefully some of the blossoms will remain that long.

This is one of the main Highways into town, Sunday morning and I lucked no traffic, only one parked car and no garbage bins! To tell the truth I have never before seen it so clear.
