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)

Wildlife Sign

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Close to where I live is koala territory.
So this sign by the roadside at Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula is very important.

Gemma....I absolutely love your memes, photograpy, poetry, and of course, YOU! I can not begin to tell you how I look forward to your posts even though I do not have the time to always comment. Once I REALLY retire, then I can spend more time on the computer. I just wanted to take time this Sunday morning to tell you how you have enriched my life through your posts and your talents. I hope you have a wonderful week. G.

Ditto what Genie said!

I love koalas, and this sign makes me smile - I'm so glad they are being watched over!

Koala are one of my favorite animals. I just cannot get enough of them but of course here they are in our zoo. I'm glad to see they are being watched over and protected where you are.

Peggy said...

How neat is that.
I don't see those signs here!
Thanks for sharing!

I can hardly imagine how wonderful it must be to have koalas in the wild near where you live. (Hopefully if you spy one it will healthy and uninjured.)

Marie said...

Love this. These koalas are beautiful.

Gemma, this is great. I think it was in New Zealand that I saw a yellow sign to watch out for koalas. And at that time I thought it would be cool to start a website where people could post unique yellow signs. It never happened, of course, being richer in ideas than execution... but anyway, I digress... this reminded me of that. MYM is over, but hope the mellow stays.
