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)

Dromana Vet Sign

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Sign outside my fantastic Dromana vet, Mornington Peninsula.
A great vet here, by the name of Sophie, treats our cat Shadow so well!
Shadow relaxes with her and accepts prodding, poking and even shaving!

Wonderful Haiku Gemma..

Dear Gemma !

As February being the month of love, I decided myself to express my love for Haiku. After penning down more than half a century of Haikus, the love for it has become immeasurable and made me throw a Challenge to myself, ‘The Haiku Challenge!’ If you ask me what is this Haiku Challenge, then I would say it is simply writing a Haiku a day, beginning February 1 and to carry on until February 28.

28 days – 28 Haikus - Wow! That sounds great right.

Gemma....I just love your signs. That is one of the fun things you get from traveling about the world. They are all so different and usually very colorful. The “el Bano” in Costa Rica for the restroom always tickled me. Also, your Australia Day posts are great. That blue hat looks like a Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat hat died blue from black. And that vintage Ford is the BEST. Happy Australia Day to you and all of your countrymen. Love you lots.....G
PS....It is REALLY snowing here....will be posting shots of this gorgeous wet and hey stuff. Being a Floridian, I am in hog heaven when we get one like this.
