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)

Soft skies of summer
Whispers of glistening hours
Romance of morning

It's lovely to see summer pictures when it's mid winter here :-) I frequently skype with friends in Sydney, so I keep track of the seasons and weather there.
You have a beautiful view from your verandah!
