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 ~ October is the month for celebrating the Scarecrow Festival on the Mornington Peninsula.
With all the rain, they have been a little slow in appearing.
But here are two brave souls outside the front gate of a Red Hills home.
