Madly Mauve


What a scene of elegance! What a scene of charm!
Underneath the jacaranda, far from all alarm.
Springtime in Australia in days of long ago,
When parlour-maids delivered tea and the pace of life was slow.
But jacarandas now, as then, lose petals all the time!
They look so pretty floating down! Objection is a crime!
They carpet lawn and path and bench as far as the eye can see.
And Mr and Mrs Perfection, here, will get petals in their tea!

A more lyrical view of jacaranda here:

Art and color...I can practically feel the period here! This is why mauve and all its related purple shades have always captivated me so. Lovely reflection of this week's theme!
