I posted recently on the jacarandas around here; it is that glorious time of year in Sydney.
But there is a double treat on offer!
The jacarandas are beautiful enough, but their flowering time is matched by the fantastic Illawarra Flame Tree.
Yes, at this time of year, where thoughtful garden planners have done a beautiful thing, we get these two magnificent arboreal specimens flowering side by side, for a breathtaking deluge of colour. And it's only a window of a couple of weeks.
These photos were all taken within a five minute walk of home in inner Sydney.
What more can I say?
