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)

Wild and Beautiful

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ It is Spring in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
And many of these flowers (they are tiny) are growing in the grass verge near the road right along my street.
I have no idea what they are called, but I love them.
Blooming Friday prompt ~ Wild and Beautiful

Like tiny orchids
A little colour on white
Bright stars of the street

Such a lovely little flower, an orchid you say? Well, I haven't got a clue but it's pretty. Orchids and me is not a good combination, unfortunatly.. In my eyes it reminds me a little of a lily or a wild tulip.. still, it's beautiful.
Thanks for visiting, and I wish you a lovely week :)

They look very attractive. Could they be species tulips? - that is a wild guess!
