Tamworth's jacaranda trees ablaze with colour

TAMWORTH streets are ablaze with a colourful vista of purple as jacaranda trees take flower across the district.

Popular for their bright colour, their blooms come out for just a few weeks at the end of spring and cover driveways, lawns and cars with a carpet of purple.
