Lovely Jacaranda's which grow here but mostly domesticated you see they have to
be hand watered. Well done. WesternRed.

A road through an avenue of flowering trees, such a beautiful sight. The colour of the blossoms is out of this world, much prettier than the flowering cherry around here! Both shots are lovely, I am mostly drawn to the wider scene of V2.
