Sydney in lilac

Row 1 Victoria Barracks
Row 2 Central Station
Row 3 St Andrews Cathedral
Row 4 Sydney Town Hall

Two views of four separate Jacaranda trees blooming in Sydney. What do you think?

It makes me yearn for the gentle season you are presently enjoying. These are beautiful, Julie. They actually make me a bit damp-eyed.

They're fabulous, Julie. What an incredible colour. I just love them. Too bad they wouldn't survive here. Sigh.

I'm glad those of us in the Northern Hemisphere have your excellent Spring photos to appreciate and warm us up! Love the purple against the brown stone.

I'm looking out my window right now at snow falling...or rather, rain that wants to be snow or vice versa...not quite cold enough for snow...and as I sit here, I yearn for the gentle warmth your pictures bring to mind...

The Victoria Barracks ones are pretty impressive.

Andrew said...

The Barracks look best. Nice and dense.

Definitely the Barracks.
I demand mass plantings of Jacaranda trees along all major roadways.

Vicki said...

Just glorious. I can just about hear the buzz of the bees from here. :)

I'd go with the barracks, too; although, the filigree-like tree at St Andrews is a lovely sight as well bold density vs elegance?).

Snap! Jacarandas on mine today too. These ones look great with the old buildings as a background.

Peter said...

Well taken Julie, they do look great against sandstone!

Kevin said...

A great selection of Jacaranda photos. I agree with Woody that they look good with the sandstone.

diane said...

Wow they are pretty impressive. hard to beat.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I like them against sandstone but nothing beats a row of them for creating an impressive show.

I think you had a lot of fun finding all these jacaranda to show us. The best jacaranda display in Oakland is in one of our poorest neighborhoods.

What a fantastic colour. Great shots!

I enjoy the bloom of lilac every year.
