Winter jacaranda

0607 winter jacaranda
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
Just past midwinter, the jacarandas are turning yellow and losing their leaves in a rather shabby fashion before their lavender-cloud November glory on naked branches (the leaves come after the blossom). The gold was particularly striking against the dark evergreens. And so different from the lime freshness of their new leaves - there's a picture of that in a blog entry I did in January if you click here.
