October is the Most Beautiful month
Up here in Pretoria the Most Beautiful Month of the year is October. We don’t get snow here in the Winter, so we wait for Spring to have our most beautiful of beautiful times of the year.
It’s Spring now and in October the Jacaranda trees start to bloom. If you are able to view the city from above you’ll see the city covered in a blanket of beautiful purple flowers everywhere you look.
Driving down streets you’ll drive under a canopy of purple. Later the month you’ll be driving on top of a carpet of purple flowers. The flowers don’t last that long and soon fall to the ground.
But while they are fixed to the trees the beauty is amazing!
Jacaranda Trees vs Christmas Trees
I just realized something, it seems that when the Jacaranda trees start to bloom, that’s when the shops start putting Xmas decorations up and bringing out the Xmas trees… I kid you not! I’ve already seen trees up for sale at some shops. They could at least wait till November to bring that stuff out.
WOW, I can’t believe in a few days we will be in November. Where has this year gone? Although I think most people wouldn’t mind 2020 to be long gone and forgotten. Wasn’t the best best year, was it?
Tree or No Tree
This year will be the second Xmas for the twins and we’re still contemplating if we should buy a tree yet, or wait till next year. They haven’t been influenced by ‘the spirit’ of Xmas yet, and have no idea what it is, they’re not old enough to understand that yet.
Also, we don’t really celebrate xmas, and I’m still unsure if I really want to ‘introduce’ that concept to the twins. Probably don’t have a choice, eventually they will find out. HAHA
In the Spirit of Spring, here is a gift for you, a free Wallpaper for your phone background…
Enjoy! Hope you like it!
Well, that’s Tuesday for you! Hope you are having a beautiful day. We are in the middle (hopefully the end soon) of a heat wave here in Pretoria…I miss Winter!!
