Every year around this time (September), Harare turns purple as the Jacaranda trees start blossoming. Harare looks amazing as its streets & avenues are lined with Jacarandas.

The Jacarandas for students, serve as a reminder of how soon they will be writing their exams. For other people, its a reminder of ‘allergy season’ as there are certain allergies associated with the Jacarandas and their blossoming season. For photographers & enthusiasts its time to take out your camera/phone & start capturing the amazing beauty and color they bring to our streets! This blog shows a few images captured around last September during the Jacaranda season.
