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)

Folded Blues

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A folded blue umbrella outside the Rose GPO Hotel, (Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula) with just a little warm sunlight on it, gave me hope that warm Spring weather was not too far away.

Folded shades of blue
Tinged with longing hope for warmth
Where is Spring weather

Lovely bright blue!!

I now truly feel that we are in the opposite hemphisphere. (We are back in Oregon, where it feels like Fall -- and oncoming Winter!).

Ellie said...

What a striking shade of blue. Stunning.

Rebecca said...

We are just putting our sun umbrellas away.

Sorry about the linking issue. I was able to get your link up after a couple tries. I have no idea what the issue was.

Carol said...

Nice shot. That photo says alot. Your haiku is really good, and so fitting for the image.

Hope you get a lot of use of your parasol this year and a sunnier Spring than we did in California!
