My goodness, what a beautiful tree, and pretty color. I wouldn't mind having this tree in my yard. Gorgeous photos!

To answer your concern: you don't have to uninstalled IE in order to download another web browser. If your computer has a good space, it's ok to have another one. If one web browser doesn't work, I use another one. Firefox is great to work with, just take a little getting used to.

I'm sitting here sighing with a feeling of delight and awe.
What a tree.
It's like having a posy of bluebells hanging off every branch.
And then a different blue in the sky behind.
Never mind the shade: the visual impact is overwhelming. Thank you.
Are you a skywatch contributor?

Jacarandas are lovely aren't they. The ones in our town are out in flower now too. Lovely photos.

I've never seen that type of tree before, but it's beautiful. You have great shots of it. The quote is so very true...future generations benefit from our efforts in so many ways!

Gorgeous shots Carole!!
I have been thoroughly enjoying the Jacarandas in bloom all over Brisbane for the last month! I have loved them since living in Grafton NSW for 12 months back in 1988-89.
I am your newest follower so I look forward to enjoying your posts and photography!
