    Purple rain, purple dreamscape

    I just have to do it. This posting is not about gender, politics, foreign aid or photoshopped  models.

    It is about beauty. The beauty of nature: the splendid jacarandas blooming just now that turn Pretoria into a lilac-purple dreamscape.

    It s said that  50,000 jacarandas line the streets.   When the blossoms drift to the ground, carpetting sidewalks, it’s like  a magical  purple rain. Awesome.
