Out and about a couple of days ago I came upon a lovely surprise- the trumpet trees are in blossom!
There are great bunches of lovely purplish-pink flowers on many streets. It's amazing how they lift the mundane roads into something pretty- you can almost forgive the arrogant scooterists honking at you as they drive on the sidewalks. They look a bit like cherry blossoms when they are not fully in bloom, but once they do bloom fully they have quite a personality of their own. I hope they last until the jacarandas come around again.

The trumpet trees have come and gone; as have the jacarandas. They asked to tell you, they missed you. When are you back? I have to tell the trees, and the flowers.
