Bidding Goodbye to the Jacaranda Season – Haiku

~ Jacaranda trees

Farewell their purple blossoms

End of November

Here are just a few pics to remember their purple beauty before they disappear from our gardens, parks and streets.

~ In full bloom, all in  purple blue

~ With a blue carpet on the ground

~ But some Jacarandas produce flowers and foliage at the same time. This one is in my street.

~ A close-up on a sunny day

~ Tall and skinny …

~ Tall, skinny and squiggly …

~ Bye until next year in November!

    This is a gorgeous flower reminding me of lilac: stunning and fleeting, marking a very specific time of the year. Your haiku does it justice.

      I haven’t seen lilac in Sydney, and yet when I googled it, I found it is grown in Australia. Praise for my haiku from you, my mentor, makes my day. Thank you, Susan, for your lovely comment.

  3. How lovely they are and I enjoyed your commentary too. We used to have Jacaranda trees lining our streets when I lived in Johannesburg. Thanks for the memory. 🙂

    Bonjour ou Bonsoir mon AMIE IRINAS

    Le Bisou est un excellent signe d’affection
    Surtout à l’approche des fêtes

    Cela fais toujours du bien
    Il témoigne de l’Amitié et de Réconfort

    Ou une réponse et à un besoin
    Vive les bienfaits du Bisou

    Je t’en fais plein ..

    C’est avec ces bisous que je viens
    Te souhaiter une belle journée ou belle soirée
    Pleine de douceur ou une nuit remplit de beaux rêves
    Biiiiisouuuus BERNARD
