To Neale Junction on Connie Sue Highway

Sunday July 31st

Hakea Francisiana

Connie Sue's garden is surely my favourite. Another wonderful day of flowers. I can't help saying again that the colours against the red sand dunes have been remarkable...mauve of the Desert Rose, orange/yellow of the Desert Grevillea, pink & white of the Daisies, blue of the Pin Cushions, yellow of the Wattle, Cassias and Everlastings; pink, white and yellow of the thryptamene and red of the Up-side-down plant..and yes, a new hakea today..growing in profusion. The Hakea Francisiana with its long pink/red tracts of flowers was quite a spectacle.

 The corrugated road is still with us but with excellent drivers we were able to travel a little more quickly and we came 175km today. We are camped near Neale Junction tonight..the junction of the Connie Sue Highway and the Anne Beadell Highway.
