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)

What gorgeous composition and so artistic. You are equally poetic in both verse and art.

That's gorgeous Gemma! I was thinking the other night about your scarecrow festival posts -- we are seeing lots of scarecrows right now, used as Fall decorations (for Halloween), but I realized that it is Spring where you are!! (I guess summer is the logical time to actually HAVE a scarecrow, so that it guards the gardens,)
