Another photo taken near Bonnievale, South Africa. The Jacaranda trees are not as big yet as in the previous upload and is only planted on one side.
Thanx so much for the response to my blackberry harvest - We have been living here for 21 years now and has never known abour blackberry crumble / pie as yet Smile My wife is now on fire to bake some ! We do have a mean liqueur they make of the stuff as well as syrups and jams.

What a magic show of Jacarandas. Here they are popular in the home garden but
Dont grow wild. Our summer plants all die off unless watered. It just does not rain
enough to carry them through to the winter. Unless you live in the tropics north.

Well done. WesternRed.

Just looking at this one, Herman and was reminded of a trip to Madeira a few years ago - I've just checked, and I have some pictures of the
jacaranda trees, too - they are truly beautiful, aren't they?
A superb photo!
