The Everyday 10 (Cont.)


Yesterday I posted a photo of our jacarandas dropping.

My city is a beautiful, purple sight to behold

Skies are clearing after a couple of days of welcome spring rain.


The streets are lined with brilliant purple blooms.


It's exam time. Students believe you're lucky if a jacaranda drops on your head.


Purple carpets on the sidewalk, as the jacarandas fall.


...and sometimes, a tree falls .

 School traffic was halted this morning.  We drove the sidewalk to mush.
Luckily, it fell during the night, and was all cleared up by lunchtime.
