To my astonishment this program was discussing the fact that there are many people who don't like Jacaranda Trees. I couldn't believe what I was hearing! What's not to like????
I took these photos of our tree about three days ago:
It has been in its best bloom for several years this year. So full and so blue!
So why don't some people like them? Because they're messy! Well yes, they do leave a circle of blue petals on the ground, but the circles are almost as pretty as the trees. The ground around our tree is covered with crushed red rock, so we don't even attempt to rake up the petals. Ah well, to each his own I guess, but I am SO enjoying our tree this year.
Oh and who is this going under cover?
This sheep rug has been in the same place forever in front of the patio window. Why on earth Scruffy decided to hide under it here, we have no idea, especially as it was one of the first warm days we'd had this year and he usually likes to lie in the sun. He doesn't even hide under bed covers or blankets. Maybe the mourning doves were harassing him at the window, I don't know. He doesn't like the whistling swish of their wings. But he's never done this before .... or since.
See you on ABC WEDNESDAY
