A Flower a Week : Jacaranda

jacaranda lr-9_2862x3816

This is Jacaranda time and these stunning trees are in full flower. The Jacaranda tree is a native of south-central South America, but is found all round the world in tropical and sub-tropical regions.

I went for a drive this morning to capture the beauty of these trees. At the moment they are at their peak flowering. As I stood under them taking photos I was enveloped in their soft sweet perfume, but if it rains or strong winds blow the petals will fall and create a carpet of mauve then it will be over until next year.

This is one of my favourite paintings from the Brisbane Art Gallery.
