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)

Water Carrier

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Back view of a Red Hill water carrier truck.
This one has been parked at the garden centre for nearly 5 months because it has rained almost every day in that time.

Hehehe! Well, I'm glad you had enough rain! :)

With all those branches it looks like nature's trying to take back her water :).

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

That the truck wasn't needed is a blessing - a drought is a frightful thing, so an unused watering truck is a very nice looking thing, indeed!
