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)

Like Floral Candy

Like floral candy
Vibrant swirls of pink and white
Like sweet little stars

floral candy! Right. In Sweden we have a candy bar called "polkagris" It looks a little like this flower in the colors. And it is striped.
Merry Christmas!

Hi Gemma! Hope you had a great christmas.
I only wanted to say that NF Macro is hosted by NatureFootstep. I never use my name online and was surprised to see you found it. As a nature photograper I go by NatureFootstep.
Hope you don´t mind. :)

thank you for changing. I was not really upset, but it was confusing as I only use NF as ID for the blogs and that is how I am known.:)
