Neale Junction to Plumridge Lakes

 Monday August 1st

Eucalyptus Youngiana buds and blooms

I cannot adequately express the continuing beauty of the desert garden. The Great Victoria Desert is in full bloom as we have never seen it before. The brilliant yellow of cassia has been with us all day along with many of the other flowers we have already flowers for today include the dark red hop bush and carpets of white daisies and mulla mulla with pale grey green salt bush. The most spectacular tree we saw is my very favourite, Eucalyptus Youngiana with its large buds and blooms.

We have made a diversion into the Plumridge Lakes Nature Reserve to camp for 2 nights amongst the bush, red sand and clear skies
