West End

purple haze descends on West End

This is one of my favourite times of the year and not just because the warmer weather starts. It’s jacaranda season and those magnificent trees have just started flowering again. This one’s right out front of the new Water’s Edge apartments and softens the view of the buildings nicely from Riverside Drive. Apparently the trees are native to Brazil but they’re such a part of the Brisbane landscape, at least for a few weeks in October/November that we all consider them locals.
