Pretty in Purple

For many university students in Australia, the end of October means exams are fast approaching. This is marked by the jacaranda trees that bloom, turning our parks, streets and city purple.

They look stunning against a blue sky.


They brighten the gloomiest of grey skies.


I have heard rumours that these beautiful flowers are a bad omen for any unlucky student upon which they fall…. But I am not convinced. How could something this naturally beautiful be unlucky?


They way I see it, being covered in purple snow could only mean that you have been showered in good luck.

Best of luck to everyone who is studying for exams. When you need a break, go for a walk outside. Life’s less stressful when you look up and see the jacarandas!
