Jacaranda by Name.

My friend Pam asked me why I called my blog "Jacaranda".
Where I had part of my growing up in Lilli Pilli, Sydney, there was large property across the road from my Public School with many Jacaranda trees lining the long walkway to the front door. I always loved them when they flowered and the blue carpet when the flowers dropped.
I was browsing through a book and it described the tree as "A haze of Blue Blossom"
As a little girl, my brother called me "Blossom". My name also starts with a "J"
Hence the name JACARANDA.

  1. I love the colour of Jacaranda too. It fascinates me how the colour appears more intense on grey days
