We are surrounded by farmland that is constantly changing, depending on the time of year and the crops that are sown. As I left for work on Friday, I just had to stop and take these photos to share. Our neighbouring paddock is in full bloom with Pyrethrum daisies.
Tasmania grows 60% of the world’s crop of this natural insecticide made from the dried flower heads.
The next paddock, before I even reach the main road, is stunning with poppy heads starting to open.
Approximately 40% of the world’s legal opiate crop is grown in Tasmania.
The new hay rounds herald the oncoming summer.
My homeward journey is equally as beautiful.
