Do you remember the jacarandas? Horseshoe Bend, Maitland

From the Maitland Mercury report:
And to my good dear friends a jacaranda question I send: did you ever see them down in Horseshoe Bend?
Did you ever see them from there on the old Bundy Hill, did you see them bright and know again that thrill? Did you watch them gentle fall atop your car; did you ever see them  carpet the tar?
And did you ever see the way they columned old Carrington Street, the way they were easy in the soft spring heat? Did you ever see them shade the barefoot kids and make a  house or a swaying ship, for muddy little Maitland feet?
