To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect to see of the streets of Johannesburg.

So it was a pleasant surprise to see many of the streets lined with jacaranda trees.

From the hotel room, I looked out of the window to see the scattered bundles of purple everywhere.

Lining the streets in their gorgeous purple glory, they are truly a feast for the eyes. Reminds me of lavender.

The flowers are very very delicate. I love how the inner stem is so fine.
