When the bloom of the jacaranda tree is here,
Christmas time is near"
- Australian Christmas Rhyme

Indeed it is – another 21 days. Scary! Have you done your Christmas shopping yet???

The sun shining through the Jacaranda Tree is one of my favourite pictures this trip. I am so disappointed that the Jacaranda and the Flame of the Forest cannot be grown in Canberra because they are not frost tolerant. Sigh…..

By the way, here are more pictures of the flora that I took around our apartment and the Cascade Gardens in Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Queensland. Unfortunately, it rained really hard the few days leading to the day I took the pictures, so most of the Jacaranda and Flame of the Forest flowers were shaken off the trees. Anyhow, hope you enjoy the pictures
