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)

Lovely poem. I used to help my parents when gardening while I was a kid. I used to enjoy it a lot. Would love to do it again sometime.

A wonderful image - it reminds me a lot of my Father who was a keen gardener.

By posting this photo from half way round the world you have triggered such great memories for me.

I wish you a really good 2011
Greetings from the UK
