the view from the afternoon

In the town where I grew up there was a wide lovely road called Kabelenga.

On one stretch of the road, at a particular time of year (Jacaranda season), the trees around would burst into a royal canopy of purple flowers.

These elegant and ostentatious flowers are originally from South America, and are actually considered an invasive species in some countries because they can prevent the growth of native plants.

They can be found all over the world, but I will always be reminded of that one road in the town I grew up in…
