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)

love those sheets. they're blue so that makes me smile. lately i've been thinking about putting a clothes line up so i can hang laundry on it. i've never done that before and thought it would be nice to try. hope all is well.

Makes a lovely picture! We know a couple of things about the person who hung that laundry: h/she is ecologically conscience AND incredibly well-organized. Maybe if you go back on a Monday there will be all red clothes and you can post them to Ruby Tuesday ;>)

Our sheets would be a frozen board these days :-( Nice blues.

Ah lovely Gemma, I can smell it from here!

I love the colors and the shadows

Carletta said...

That looks like a lovely summer day! :)
It's funny I used to help my Grandma hang laundry but I've never done it myself. The dryer is easier!
Nice shot!

You made from something so simple, such an awesome pic!

Oh wash day does give me the blues. I had to stop hanging things out because of allergies. But there is nothing like fresh clothes from the line.
