Isn’t it pretty? These have been blooming all over town lately and they are just gorgeous. When I described them to Jane, she thought they might be Jaquaranda trees. After a quick Google search, I discovered she was right. Isn’t it spectacular? Further investigation also revealed some superstitions concerning this tree. In South Africa, if a bloom falls on you; you’ll pass all your exams. In Australia however, if a bloom falls on you you will fail an exam, but this can be reversed if you manage to catch another before it hits the ground. Sweet as!
