Although the jacaranda blooming season is on the wane, we still found plenty of purple vistas to photograph and the trees looked great from the Tyrwhitt’s 9th-floor penthouse balcony. Plus it was Halloween weekend and hoards of cute trick-or-treaters added to the vibe.
Rosebank is 15 minutes from my house and I normally go there only for shopping or the occasional dinner out. But this time Thorsten and I got to spend the night at the Tyrwhitt, and it was really fun to stay in Rosebank and experience the area like “locals” — especially during this magical season. Rosebank is delightfully walkable and there are still plenty of stately art deco apartment blocks to admire, mixed in among glitzy new high-rises like the Tyrwhitt.
Here’s a visual journey of our weekend.
And that was our Rosebank weekend. I’m very sad the jacaranda season is nearly over — already looking forward to next year.
One last thing: Johannesburg in Your Pocket is currently hosting its annual #JacarandaInYourPocket2022 photo competition, and first prize is a two-night stay at the Tyrwhitt. (There are lots of other great prizes up for grabs, too.) The competition ends on 13 November so get those Instagram posts up.
