Summer, Autumn, Winter, Lavendar…

Every year I post much the same thing, and I don’t see why 2009 should be any different. What do I know about originality? You might guess from the title of the post that the season is spring will feature. And you’d be right, of course. Spring, in Mexico at least is my favourite time of year.

Spring is warm, dry and a little dusty in Mexico City, which is just how I like it. The rains won’t come in earnest till May, in theory, and March and April are just perfect in every way. I know what you’re thinking…it’s a couple of months till Spring yet.

It is, but the first signs have arrived. On Sunday I walked past a Jacaranda tree that stands next to Bellas Artes, with it’s first lavendar blooms on show for all to see. In another few weeks huge swathes of the city will be engulfed with the lavendar petals fluttering from twigs and branches in mild breezes, and the pavements blanketed in lavendar from the fallen blossoms.
