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)

Hey Gemma! Don't know why....but the tree looks like a song - what song....we don't know - but the shadow looks very musical to us today!

Beautiful. You have turned a fence into a work of art.
