One piece of local student lore is that if you haven't started studying in earnest by the time the jacaranda trees have started blooming then you're in for a painful exam season. Personally, I'm just glad I'm not a student anymore.
I can't think of an example of the top of my head. Wouldn't surprise me if there were and I've never noticed though - I'm botanically useless so unless they were blooming right in front of me I would be clueless.When I lived down south there was often an Illawarra Flame Tree planted nearby which contrasted nicely ith the Jacaranda. Do they do that in Brizzie, Sam?
