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)

They are rather like bird feeders, aren't they? How cute! Is that number 21 or should it be 1, 2 - if so, why does it read right to left?

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! They do look like little eyes. I hope they don't freak the mailman out too much!

The up and down slots kind of remind me of bat boxes. Yeeeek!

I like the fence though!

Dear Gemma, I love the meme concept of weekend mailbox and I wish to join next time. It's about time there is something we can do with our treasures we kept for years and showcase them. Great post. I join the Postcard exchange web where we can send real postcards and get the same real postcards back. It's fun to get something real which we can pull out from the mailbox.

Love your post here and the layered reflection above. I get that result now and then but still keep them anyway.
