Jacaranda time

Jacaranda time

Jacarandas bloom in Spring time, and are evident all over Brisbane at the moment. The colourful flowers form a beautiful carpet underneath the trees. Jacarandas are not native to Australia, but have been planted everywhere for their colour and because they are a fast growing shade tree. The building is the old Government Houses in Brisbane City area.

My parents had a large Jacaranda tree when I was growing up and I loved the purple carpet under it. This brings back great memories.... thank you :) V.

Gorgeous lighting and composition Lou. Well captured :)I am originally from the Jacaranda City of Grafton NSW so I have a soft spot for these trees. Good job.
