What I Saw in My Garden

A beautiful sprig of Jacaranda flowers.

I was under the impression Jacarandas can take between 7 – 14 years to flower. That would make me much older before I could appreciate their delicate blooms in my backyard.

But . . . Lo and Behold . . . after just two years, I have pretty little purple trumpets.

These delighted me no end.

  1. Aren’t they something! Yours is a beauty!
    We had a few blooms one year but the tree got hit by frost and we had to trim it… and it never bloomed again. I have seen whole big trees full of these blooms in our neighborhood… go figure!

    1. Hi Miss Nancy (I’m so sorry I missed this). In Brisbane, which is quite hilly with many peaks and troughs along many roadways, blooming Jacarandas look like purple clouds – they are stunning 💜 mine is just a little potted tree but I’m delighted to know that, now, I can enjoy my own little purple cloud each year.
