But first, given it's been pouring rain today (albeit without thunder and lightning), a musical interlude (I'll provide the words, you provide the tune):
Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens (that one's for you, Alwen!)
Pancakes for breakfast
And tall spiky flowers
Jasmine flowering over the verandah...
These are a few of my favourite things!
Now, back to that jacaranda...I thought I was going to have to disappoint you all but when I went out to take today's photo, I found purple flowers on the uppermost branches!
You still can't really see them in the photo, but trust me they are there.
Soon enough, the ground will be carpeted with the purple flowers too!
