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)

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Touches of light and shadow through new Spring flowers in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Blooming Friday prompt ~ Against the Light

Cascading flowers
Pockets of shadow and light
Like weeping colours

Great shot, Gemma, is it a Wisteria?
I wish you a great weekend in lovely Melbourne (?)
We had our first snow last night and it is freezing cold today. I wish I were down under instead.
