While on our recent trip to Sydney, we had to cross
many miles of New South Wales' erstwhile gold country,
now gleaming with a different gold that rewards one's
labour with a little more certainty.
With the blue hills surrounding this wealth of gold,
I could have, like Dorothy, happily sunk down into
a hundred year sleep...woops, seems my bedtime
stories are getting tangled.
The road side weed, Echium plantagenium, covered
the road verges just in time for a welcome colour change.
All photos enlarge so you too may be blinded with gold.
