    I went down Goulburn Rd yesterday and went down Bigga Rd for the first time yesterday.

    I think this is False Sarsaparilla. Please correct me if you know better. Blooming all over the shop and looking great. 20200913_112527.jpg

    A small creek by the side of the road my photography doesn't do justice too.

    Ye mighty Lachlan River and the SUV.

    I wore the wrong kit and the weather closed in on me, I almost turned around a couple of times but I'm happy I kept at it. The scenery between Bigga and Reid's Flat is pretty sweet. The cats heads are in full bloom and some of the fields are a delightful see of yellow flowers. Almost good enough to make you forget they're evil and will making people squeal in a couple of months.

    I strait lined home from Cowra. Turns out the Canola fields are a traffic hazard with all the !@#$% sightseers.

    Oberon Dam with some work in front of it. It's kinda scary. Bathurst Council was trying to get water from here all year. Now we're all but 100% and Oberon is still only at about 25%.

    I remember those days. When we use to travel this wide brown land. Distant memory.

    Yes correct.
    Hardenbergia Violacea.
    " It is known in Australia by the common names false sarsaparilla, purple coral pea, happy wanderer, native lilac and waraburra (which comes from the Kattang language)."

    Sweet. Planted a couple in the backyard last Christmas. Hopefully they can emerge from the weeds and be that cool.
