Sydney in November is - purple. The Jacaranda trees burst into colour seemingly overnight. Whole streets are covered in purple blooms,and your car if you park under them. A town on the North Coast, Grafton, has an annual Jacaranda Festival.(I'm not sure what that entails, having never attended). This post is for Annie, whose November birthday is heralded by the blooming of these purple flowers. By December, they'll be gone - so we'll enjoy the burst of colour while we can.
