Black Bean Flowers, Rainbow Lorikeet, Jacaranda Blossoms & Bird Bath

Here are some photos I took recently of a black bean tree in my front yard, and a beautiful carpet of jacaranda blossoms.  They festooned every plant in the dog’s yard and looked beautiful.  We have had torrential rain lately for about a week, and the blossoms have all been dropping.  I also took some photos of the bird bath with interesting reflections of trees in the water.
