Jacarandas in bloom

Fallen Jacaranda leaves on grass

A soft carpet of Jacaranda leaves at the Balmain Watch House

It’s that time of year in Australia when the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom. The flowers fall to form carpets of mauve which are quite beautiful (though don’t park your car under one).

At the old Balmain Watch House on Darling Street, the blanket of mauve of the jacaranda flowers on the grass was simply gorgeous – purple and green mixing together.

Nature sure knew what she was doing.
