Today we were heading north from Whakatane
We came upon this hillside covered in
what we call Pampas Grass.
The bushy flowers do look attractive,
particularly with the sun behind them.
To the best of my memory pampas
is a noxious weed in Australia.
Somewhere near Paerora is the best
I can do for this image.
We were on our way to Matta Matta
and the Hobbiton Movie Set.
