jacaranda season - a sydney wander

It's no secret that I love jacarandas. We have a jacaranda tree in our garden that hasn't bloomed this season, so last weekend I went out in search of trees in full bloom.

I didn't have to go far. I found trees in bloom next door, across the street, in the adjoining suburbs - everywhere it seemed, just not my backyard. I found this tree and this statue in one of my favourite streets in Woollahra.

Some of the most fabulous blooms I found in Paddington near the Victoria Barracks.

How gorgeous does the Fiveways look dressed in lavender?

I walked down through the back lanes of Paddington in search of trees in full bloom and found walls covered in jasmine and decorative figs.

Along the way I found this curious corner, with a hand painted street sign.

Breakfast amongst the jacarandas on a sunny Sunday morning in Paddington. You gotta love Sydney on a day like thise.

I was still on the prowl for the elusive stand alone jacaranda tree without the distraction of parked cars and street signs. In the end I gave up, defeated and shot skywards instead.

I hope you enjoyed my jacaranda stroll through the streets of Woollahra, Paddington and Redfern.

See you all again next week,

Bye for now,
