Pool area on a late afternoon in October. The jacaranda's feathery leaves are yellowing, while all other trees are showing fresh life, in confident expectation of the rains, which usually start in mid November. In mid-winter, many days are like this as well, clear and sunny, with jubilant plant life all around.
