JACARANDA

Post by Neville Briggs » Sun Nov 04, 2012 1:14 pm

There's hundreds of Jacarandas around Singleton. At this time of year the landscape is a riot of lilac coloured blossoms. They are messy, smelly things, and not native but very spectacular in the short flowering season, as I am sure most of you would know.
This is a big one in the main street of Singleton near the river.

Thanks Heather. Grafton NSW is famous or its jacaradas, I think Singleton has more than Grafton, but probably not as consistently big and showy.

We've got our share at Ipswich as well :lol: :lol: - there's a pool of perfumed purple posies prettying up the park at Goodna as we speak where we have just celebrated our annual Jacaranda Festival. Sadly a lot of the older trees were severely damaged in the 2011 floods and had to be removed but the council have replaced them and are blooming beautiful.

Check them out here

The Poincianas seem a bit slow about coming into bloom this year - usually they are out at the same time as the Jacarandas

Loved your photo Neville - that is a gorgeous tree

Love them Nev ... Just came back from a festival in Imbil where I ducked out from the venue in the early morning to take a few piccies too ...

Very good Manfred. In your photos you got a better depth of colour than mine. Perhaps with the varied greens and stronger tonal contrasts.

Our trees are not tarts, they are respectable. :lol: :lol: Actually Maureen, in the right light it does have colour like that. It's a wonderful colour.
