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)

aren't they just the sweetest? lovely statue.

love the post below. i couldn't agree more about nature needing to be higher on the agenda than it appears to be at times. i cringe everytime i see a mountain being destroyed for a road or building because no one seems to question what will happen to all the wildlife. people should progress but not at a cost to precious animals/ trees, etc. your sky picture is filled with drama, i think. hope all is well.

Wow Gemma! You seem to be everywhere! If it's only through the memes that we can actively share of our pride: joy, sorrow and photos.

I have already posted something for the Weekend Nature in my main blog incase I'm not home.

Will have to do the Friday Wheel as well. Cheers!

It is sweet on several levels.
Cute to look at, and touches the heart with its maternal charm.
Is also a wonderful work of art.

How tender this is. I love the sleek curve of the mother's head and trunk.
