Harry Potter Building




If you’ve been to The Sydney University building in Camperdown and enter the main quadrangle, you will know why some of the students here call this building as “Harry Potter Building”.

I went to this ‘Harry Potter Building’ last weekend to enjoy the impressive display of purple flowers of Jaracanda trees, which bloom in mid spring for approximately six weeks.

The city of Grafton in the north coast of NSW is also famous for its Jacarandas, they have a Jacaranda festival during the period of full bloom. Jacarandas are also very popular and can be found in cities all over Israel, they were introduced to this country over 50 years ago.

Jaracanda tree is beutiful!! I love the purple color..
nice building, I like classics (old) building), but not for my own house, hard to clean.. just enjoying "warisan jaman dulu", and yea.. as long as it's not spooky like old castles in England.
