On the way home from Te Anau we turned off the highway early and took in the glorious site of the daffodil plantings at Kaihiku.

Both sides of the road are also planted for miles in either direction

These were shattered by hail last spring (see photo journal 2010) – they’ve recovered well haven’t they?!
