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)

The flowers announce that Spring is here totally, the shapes of the flowers are perfectly formed for real and in shadow, too. Spring always arrives at the right time, since we await it all Winter...

Hey Harriet said...

Lovely spring flowers and haiku! You mentioned it was still chilly where you are. It's chilly here now also. My shadow shot was taken on the one day early this week that we had sunshine and high temps. Since that day it has been constant rain and wind. It's amost cyclonic! I want my hot benches, sun and ice cream back!

Let's hope things warm up for us both this week! Have a good one Gemma :)

As Fall will turn to Winter here in the North, I look forward to coming here and to others in Oz and share another Spring and ummer.
Thius shadow shot is a fine start.

G-day dear friend, boy am I late getting back to everyone...I just couldn't force myself to get on the PC after getting home from work Saturday...and there it sat all day Sunday too, as Scratchy and I hit the road early,. taking in all the warmth and Autumn we could muster.

Gold and scarlet dotted the landscape everywhere in my countryside, warm air and Nature abound, as my last attempt to make it last in my memories fulfilled my wishes...I bet you have days like that too, where just getting away and enjoying the beginnings of Spring just seem to fill your needs.

It's a scary time for me too, as finances will be slim during the winter months people just can't get out and about, because of the about dread!!! But it is what it is and my dreams of living back in Florida flood my soul...some day!

I wonder if the economy will ever get any better here in the states, as corruption seems to abound in the world these days, I worry for my Grandson's generation...I hope they can fix it without revolution!

Have a wonderful week my little friend and know that I think of you often!!!

Warm Autumn hugs from a friend afar!
