The Whistlestop

And so we drove on into Central Otago, got to Clyde, where for the first time ever I noticed 'The Whistlestop', my attention caught by golden foliage.

Shower of Gold

Beautiful golden native kōwhai flowers outside the RSA today. Appears to be a deciduous form, that's what caught my eye first about a week ago - all these flowers and no leaves!

Plenty of golden yellow colour brightening our town in the gardens and along the streets. We enjoyed a lovely local walk on Saturday afternoon and I noticed afterward that many of my photos have yellow blooms which inspired me to use them in a 'Yellow' post 🙂 Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
