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)

De pluie chargée
au grand mérite
s'en va à la dérive
De rêves en rives...

(French Haiku I just composed to honorate your beautiful picture, but I'm not sure I'll be able to translate it)

Daisies are survivors, they bend if necessary, but don't break easily. I'm sure this one was completely recovered, and quickly!

Bent but not broken - and may we be the same? May our spirits bend but not break!

I like your photo and the words are so true!
Our queen in Denmark, Margrethe the II, loves daisies, and her private friends call her "Daisy" ;-)

I would never have thought that a drooping daisy could make such an intriguing picture Gemma.
When we lived in Oregon, our spring flowers were often ruined by rainstorms. it was a good year if the tulips and daffodills made it through their blooming cycle.

Great shot! Hopefully the water will make it feel better.
