Jasmine or Jacaranda?

Queensland at this time of year is truly something special. The tree lined streets, lit up with the brightest of purple Jacaranda trees, is truly a sight to be seen. But for me, it is all about the Jasmine.
Whether it is Jasmine hedges or Star Jasmine grown over little gate houses, I cannot get enough of it!
I am not sure whether it is because I have a big nose (I do!), but the smell of Jasmine as we go for our daily walk absolutely overwhelms my senses. I stood outside a Jasmine covered little gatehouse, similar to the one below the other day and couldn't help but take the deepest of breaths - closing my eyes I remembered the Jasmine hedge that grew outside my bedroom window when I was growing up. Waking up to that smell was heaven. I must have looked like a mad woman standing outside the front of this house, but when you live somewhere as beautiful as Brisbane in Spring, these things simply cannot be helped.

It is the end of the weekend friends. Hope your weekend has been as enjoyable as ours
