Change, a Peach Lace Dress, and Jacaranda Trees

I can't help but feature the beautiful purple jacaranda trees again. As I mentioned in my previous post, the flowers don't stay for very long and I couldn't resist taking another set of photos to bid them goodbye. These shots were taken last month. Spring has left, and summer (and the heat waves) has now arrived in Adelaide.
Peach lace dress - Temt, flats - Rubi

Now that I'm experiencing summer, I have now been through all 4 seasons in Adelaide. (My first as I came from a forever tropical country.) It's a beautiful feeling to transition as the seasons change. The colors of the trees change, you adjust to the temperature, you change the way you dress, oh and your electric bill falls and rises.

Change is a beautiful and scary thing. And on my ongoing journey here, change is more constant than ever. There are cold, cloudy, gloomy times, and then there are times of flowers and sunshine.

But I, for one, am determined to keep moving forward, but to also take time to stop and smell the roses.

Always,
Jeanne

  19. This is such a lovely post, Jeannie! First off, you look so beautiful in that pretty lace dress and those lace up flats! I live in New York and we experience all 4 season here as well. Well, actually, our winter hasn't really been felling much like winter at all lately. Christmas Eve is supposed to be 70, which is unheard of for us. It's usually either freezing or freezing with a lot of snow! But generally speaking, we experience the best that each season has to offer and that's one of the many reasons I wouldn't want to leave. I know the experience must have been so lovely for you, having come form a tropical country. It's nice to experience a bit of change in scenery, temps and fashion every few months :)

    I hope you have a wonderful day, beauty, and thanks so much for sharing!

  27. The jacaranda trees are beautiful when they bloom! Your dress is lovely too.

    Glad you are enjoying the changing temperatures. Hopefully the heatwaves haven't been too difficult for you, it's been really warm down south! It hasn't gotten up to 40 yet here in Queensland so we are very lucky.

    Hope you have a merry Christmas!
