Hello November!

November's here and that means we can smell a Sydney summer on the way. Before we swelter in the heat and humidity, let's welcome the penultimate month of the year.



The jacaranda trees have opened their blooms to the sky and, before the leaves form, all we can see is the majestic shape of the trunk and branches and the purple haze of flowers. This tree is a block from my house and I photographed it on a balmy day. Aah, November - you are very welcome.

  1. That first sentence seems so wrong for us on the other side of the world! I love those tulips in your last post - really effective. xCathy

  2. Hi Cathy! Thanks for your kind words. You can live summer vicariously through us Aussies while you are shivering. :-)

  3. And then to further confuse things - the first hints of fall are the fall flowers and only falling acorns... while the leaves stay on the live oaks!
