Sugar cane


As we nudged our way up to Mackay we saw our first sugar cane plantations.  I know, I know we are going to see lots more of it but it was exciting to welcome these first stands.

  1. I've never been through this part of Queensland before so looking forward to seeing it through your eyes.

    1. I had been right up north as a kid but remembered hardly anything. On the other hand, my husband went up there as a kid about the same age and remembered heaps. I dunno what I was doing ... sleeping probably.

  2. When the flower blooms it is time to harvest so you might not see lots more.

    1. Ah yes, we discovered that those flowers mean harvest time.

    1. I hadn't either. They are so pretty with loads and loads of pinkish fluffy flowers across the field. There are more shots somewhere in the sequence.
