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)

Those look like really big succulent plants growing in those planters. They look attractive as a pair in the blue pots.

True blue -- a perfect spot for these vases. Lovely picture.

At first I pictured these as small pots, but I see that they are quite big aren't they? They do seem to stand there like sentinels. I think your poems goes perfectly with the photos.

Neat contrast between the texture of the plant and the pots. And I LOVE that shade of blue.

The blue does pop against the brick. The plants seem to be reaching for the sun's rays. I think maybe the pots should be turned. :)
Lovely poetry!
