On the weekend we drove about 6 hours south in to New South Wales to meet up with my daughter and her boyfriend (they drove 6 hours up from Sydney) for a short stay at Coffs Harbour. On Sunday morning we drove inland a couple of hours to see some waterfalls and have lunch in a small town called Armidale.

Around lunchtime we went our separate ways and we headed north for home along the inland route called the New England Highway where long stretches were covered in these yellow flowers ...

Half a world away and still it looks an awful lot like our New England. Love the bright yellow flowers - just wonderful. Nice scenery.

Nice set! I'm in between 1 and 2, for different reasons of course.

Thanks Kat, Iggy and Marko. After driving for 2 hours in the morning (6 hours the previous day) and then another 4 hours with another 2 hours left to drive ... it was a very nice distraction.

I like those yellow flowers. The yellow 'flowers' where I live are dandelions.

What? Without telling you lot and visiting? Very unlikely ;)

From Brisbane there are two main ways to drive to Sydney ... down the coastal route called the Pacific Hwy ... or the inland route called the New England Hwy. We drove down one and back the other :)

Another vote for #2, but like them all. Very bright and uplifting set, as we do not have much in the way of colour around here at the moment.

Boy, those things grow everywhere! (Or it's very similar to ones I've seen). I like the first and second ones best.

Not sure what they were .... looked like a big daisy.
