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)

Tiny ornament
Like a blue glimpse of legends
Whimsical old worlds

Oh that's lovely. It must be tricky to find fading blues... the first thing that came to my mind was blue jeans!

I thought it looked the colour of faded jeans, too! 'like a blue glimpse of legend' - I liked the imagery that conjured.

Rachel Ashwell's blog had the blues today, how simply refreshing the color of blue, one of my faves. This getting up so early in the morning isn't even for the birds...I must check my inner clock for malfunctions...have a great day sister!

I think it is very pretty. I love the subtle coloring.

Carol said...

Oh, this is a very pretty yard decoration. I love the blue in this, it has just enough...

Dianne said...

I think the fading makes it even more beautiful

Carolyn Ford said...

The fading blue means this little ornament has been happy in a beautiful garden for quite some time! Lovely, Gemma!

Kathy said...
