The wonderful Mallee Sallee trees lined the road all the way until we reached the Riverland Country along the Murray. Flowers are evident along the roadside as well. Many eucalypts are in bloom..mostly cream flowers but some red and yellow. We found Woodwardie trees in full bloom..a magnificant sight! Cassia and wattle are showing their spring colour as well. I have been gathering a few eucalypt leaves to dye silk with, later in the trip.
Every water way we have seen has some birdlife on it..ducks, pelican and swan are clearly enjoying the extra lakes and ponds.
