That time of year
Jacarandas bloom, the air is sweet with the scent, the sidewalks are covered with purple petals, the parks glow with purple here and there ... birds are happy too .. it is all just so very beautiful.
When you wake up all cranky and tired in the morning and you drag yourself down to the park with a bouncy cheerful dog, there is nothing you can do ... your mood will lift, you will start to enjoy the day .. everywhere you look, there are those masses of purple, trees line the boulevard, in the parks, along the streets, in the back gardens of homes .. Jacaranda trees .. bringing fabulous color and scent ..
They don't last long, the petals fall, the ground is covered with them, then the leaves are green and you have to wait until next year to see them again.
It is worth the wait.
