I could have shown you a vast yellow canola field but it just needed an extra touch of red to make it that bit more fabulous :) Yesterday we traveled roughly 430kms around the Wheatbelt region of WA, so many small country towns, some so small if you blinked you missed them! Along the way there were beautifully tarred roads, strip roads and sometimes dirt roads.. and many photo stops..
Shorn sheep giving me the 'eh city folk, haven't they seen a nekked 'ovine' before :)
Horses grazing in fields surrounded by purple..
Spring is the best time to take a trip like this, the weather is cool, the wild flowers are out in abundance and the fields are green..
We passed the Dowerin salt lakes below, shimmering pink after the rain..
Neatly rolled hay bales freshly harvested...
Below a field of pink ever-lasting daises, Aimee was
right in macro heaven :) Named 'the wildflower state', thousands of visitors from around the world visit WA at this time of the year expressly to view the huge expanses and many species of wildflowers around the state, these are just the tip of the wildflower ice-berg! Hope you enjoyed our trip to the country, it's possible there may be more tomorrow :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe... p.s. the sky changed from blue to grey so many times during the nine hour trip, a typical WA day! P.p.s failed to find the piano graveyard..next time!
