Still in the Mpumulanga Province in the Middleburg area, all along the sides of the road grow the tall beautiful pink and white Cosmos flowers. They do grow further away from the road too in vast fields but for some strange reason it would appear they seem to enjoy the car fumes :) as you can find them mostly there. They only flower during the months of March and April and then they're gone.... till next year!

Outside Dullstroom (Mpumulanga Province) we drove straight into a bank of dark and heavy clouds. We quickly took a side road to allow us to take pictures without being interrupted. Once back on the main road the storm hit us! Steam billowed up caused by the heat of the hot tar, and also from the railway tracks that ran alongside the road. Eventually we drove out from under the storm but still the incredible clouds hung from the skies ever changing as we headed back to Johannesburg.
