[/box] The jacarandas in Johannesburg are a sight to see, the northern suburbs of the city turn purple with these majestic trees.
This, from end of October the the firs few weeks of November, is the season.
We call it purple rain season and you can see why.
Interesting fact: The Jacaranda is not native to South Africa or Africa for that matter, even if our capital city Pretoria is widely known for it. The tree is native of Central and South America.
