Spring!

The first day of Spring in South Africa!! And this is how I remember Pretoria!! The Jacaranda trees almost fully in bloom! When it's October, I will just admire these pictures and picture it in my mind!

On this picture you can see the City Hall of Pretoria.

Telcom Tower in Groenkloof
The city also called the Jacaranda City.
This picture shows the view from the city from the Union Buildings, you can see the gardens of the Union Buildings. The "black" building is the Reserve Bank and the tallest building to the right of it is Absa-bank.





These last two pictures are from the Union Buildings, it was made of sandstone and was designed by Sir Herbert Baker and in November 1910 the cornerstone was laid.

  1. I have tried to make a special posting for our spring day - in Afrikaans, but it revolves around 2 English songs, one downloadable as mp3 and the other one an embedded YouTube video.
