As I was coming onto the bridge yesterday morning I spied the first jacaranda bloom of the year – does anyone know why that is always the first one? Just to the left as you come up to the toll booths going south?
Anyway, I have a personal thing that, as the song says, “When the Jacaranda blooms Xmas time is near”… so I broke out the Xmas playlist and sang a few favs. (You have permission to remind me of my enthusiasm and excitement any time I grizzle about Xmas music in the next couple of months – but for now its all good).
Hope your day is full of hope and excitement, Diane
