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)

Little Tree Folk

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ On Christmas Day, we had lunch at Portsea Hotel, Mornington Peninsula.
Outside were beautiful views of Port Phillip Bay.
Children loved playing games on the rolling lawns.
Here, 2 young girls are playing/chatting in a tree.

Before I scrolled down to see what you had written I thought of faeries when I saw the photo.

Such a nice shot. Girls at play. Thanks for continuing to participate in this meme and I'm glad you enjoy my weekly comments. Sometimes I think you all must be tired of me trying to say something each week.
