It is October and the beautiful Jacaranda trees are in bloom now. Their distinctive seasonal flowering, a soft lavender purple, is synonymous with Spring in our sub-tropical city. In our oldest parks and public gardens and along many streets, these majestic trees put on their Spring display. Here, in my little suburb, there are many jacarandas, their spreading branches covered in masses of their beautiful blossoms. These blossoms fall in a swirl of purple that covers the grass and footpaths below in a soft and flowery carpet. I love to walk beneath them ...
Masses of jacaranda flowers
A carpet of fallen flowers covers the path.
Soft & beautiful purple blossoms.

Loving // Jacarandas in bloom, like purple punctuation marks along our streets.
(Back to school biscuits!)
Drinking // Cold water with a few lemon juice ice cubes for zing!
Feeling // So very tired.
Making // A set of Melissa's red and white peace doves for Christmas giving.
Thinking // That Christmas gets earlier every year ...
Dreaming // Of this distant, but not too distant, shore. It's only seven short weeks away!
I'm not sure what's blooming in your own Here & Now but if you'd like to share, or to peek into the October of others, you can pop over to Sarah at her beautiful blog, Say Little Hen. A visit there will brighten your day!
