Jacaranda!

Taken by Karen near the Sydney Opera House while we were on our way to Sailors Thai for dinner. The shot was taken from below the tree against the sky but she got around the back lighting by metering on our trusty digital Olympus. And there’s even copy space, she says.

Oh, wow. Jacarandas are my favorite type of tree. I love the spring when half of Mexico city is covered in purple flowers.
Beautiful photo.

We’ve never seen Jacarandas till we went to Sydney this time round!

Oh, beautiful flowers. I’m just a sap for pictures of beautiful flowers. I wish we had this type of flowers in singapore.

I’m constantly surprised at the posts that people end up commenting on. Always a nice surprise to hear from real people instead of spam bots.

This reminds me of when my grandmother and I would collect fallen jacaranda blossoms in my lunchbox, after school. We’d fill up the sink and float the flowers to clean them before we strung them into leis. I felt like an ancient priestess performing a sacred ritual with my grandmother. They’d only last a few days, but I’ll make them with my kids and grandkids too.
