Photographer's Note

Jacaranda trees are native to South America but they can supposedly grow anywhere where there is no risk of frost. I read they became very popular in Sydney. I remember admiring them in Buenos Aires, Malaga and of course, like everything else, they can also grow on Madeira. Unfortunately, I arrived there where most of the purple flowers could be seen on the ground (in this photo) rather than on trees. But in Madeira, like in California, there is always something blooming, so for example for the first time in my life I have seen there beautiful African Tulip Trees (Spathodea campanulate).
Taxis are a good way to explore Madeira but of course the best option is always to rent a car. I usually try a bit of both depending on what is the most convenient and offers more freedom to explore.
