Summer Blossom

One of the glorious things about summer in Auckland is the profusion of Jacarandas and Bougainvilleas in bloom at this time of year. I know they’re both imported trees but the intensity of their colours – red and purple – is fabulous. I am fortunate to have a Scarlet O’Hara Bougainvillea Scarlet O’Hara Bougainvillea growing over the back of my house and out my lounge window can see a Jacaranda is all its purple glory. Fantastic!

    That is gorgeous.

    I know there’s something about Australian soil that causes foreign flora to grow unusually well there (for better or for worse). Does the same go in NZ?
