It is Jacaranda time (October and November) and it is easily my favourite time of the year. At Gympie accommodation, Lagoon Pocket Bed and Breakfast we have numerous big old Jacarandas in the grounds that are creating beautiful purple carpets all around the gardens.
It is a time full of colour. The Bougainvillea is crimson. The Star Jasmin is white. The Hippeastrums are red. The mock orange not only adds white but their amazing scent floods the garden. Then there the lavenders and the Brunfelsia (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow)…..and that is just the flowers!
The Galahs, Pale Headed Rosellas, Kingfishers, King Parrots, assorted wrens, Crested Doves, Rosellas, Corellas, Honey-Eaters are all doing their spring time best to bring flashes of colour, not to mention song to the property.
And of course we could not do this page without mentioning “Priny” our resident Peacock. You wake up to Peacock calls, not just Robin the Rooster calls, here at Lagoon Pocket B&B!
Come and enjoy Jacaranda time at Lagoon Pocket Bed and Breakfast. It is a time full of colour and a little magic.
