AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Mellow Yellows are Falling

Collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ Mellow yellow autumn leaves in my garden, Mornington Peninsula
Mellow Yellow Monday #9

Time to change the heat
Time to sleep in cooler dreams
Time of falling gold

Oh no...that makes me so sad for you, even as Autumn is such a beautiful season to behold, I know what lies ahead, I am just leaving there...Winter.

Blowing seas and sands, walkers clad in coats and scarfs, that is those brave enough to leave their shelters...yet for me a real sense of calm takes over, a time for the resting of a season, asleep and building momentum again for Spring. At least you don't have to deal with the ice and snows...but I'm still sad for see summer go.

I'm just a summer person, and this song makes me lament.

Have a great week my Aussie friend!

I like when the leaves turn yellow. The different shades of yellow are so nice when the mix in with the other green leaves. Nice shots! :-)

Here in North America, spring is about to be sprung - so it's hard to think of autumn arriving Down Under. But you've posted the evidence, so I guess it must be so!

What happened to summer? I blinked and it was over!!

Autumn is a nice time to be outdoors though... however winter will be here far too soon.
