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)

That is such a lovely scene! What is the lavender?

Lynn said...

We have a couple of lavender farms in and around our area; I buy their products but haven't made a tour. It's a tie between lavender and rose for my favorite scent.

Great photo.

What beautiful colors ... they really do go together well! And the cattle make a serene tranquil scene.
