Our countryside

Overnight the sunflowers have burst into bloom on the farms surrounding our town

Traveling to see our children and grandchildren this weekend, the cosmos along the roads, was spectacular! 

Wherever there were fields of cosmos, there were people and their cameras capturing the beauty! 

In Golden Gate Highlands National Park the colors ran from purple, to lilac to white
Gladstone's Nose is a unique rock formation resembling the profile of a former British Prime Minister: William Ewart Gladstone 
This large rock,  Brandwag Butress  guards the entrance to the park

Happy Monday to you all! 


  1. What a wonderful coloured visa over the fields and that rock is hugh.

  2. The flowers are beautiful. So many of them.

  3. Hello Jo, I love the fields of sunflowers and the cosmos! Just beautiful scenes. The rock profile and nose is cool. Great captures from your trip! Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  4. I can see why fields of flowers like that would make you stop - what great colour.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
