Chip on my shoulder (BBQ)
These are beautiful trees and are in bloom for about six to eight weeks at this time of year.
Love the jacarandas in flower. I just discovered the other day that Pretoria is also famous for jacarandas, prehaps more so then Brisbane. And apparentely because the blooming coincides with year end exams, there is a superstition at University of Pretoria that if a jacaranda flower falls on your head, then you'll pass your exams
Yes, Pretoria, like Brisbane, is famous for its Jacarandas. They seem to do well in sub-tropical climates. Grafton in NSW is also very famous for these trees.
