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)

An Oz White Christmas

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Delightful white fluffy flower on a huge tree at Bittern, Mornington Peninsula
Macro Monday #117

Like gentle bristles
Like Nature's festive baubles
An odd white Christmas

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The whole tree appears heavy with pockets of snow!
But this is Australia and almost summer!
(But with so much chilled rain and wind it's hard to find pockets of sun!)

What a beautiful flower and tree! Except for the leaves, the tree might be covered with snow!
