What a joy it was to drive through the streets and saw the purple splendour of the Jakarandas. In Coin, Spain if I can remember correctly, I saw not more than 5 Jakarandas. I was very grateful for that too.
Those of you who are not from SA and even more so, not from Pretoria won't know what the fuss is all about, but Pretoria, my home town in SA is also known as the Jakaranda City. There must be a few thousand in the city (is it possible or am I exaggerating..?)
Some of these trees have a deeper colour purple and many at present are already full with leaves and also still full with flowers.
Enjoy and be grateful with me.. :)
Apologies for the poor quality of the pictures but it was taken with my mobile. We haven't replaced our stolen camera yet.
