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)

Very Strange Summer Skies

Collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ Strange summer skies in the last two days here in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
After just a couple of sunny summer days, we are back to endless rain.
The misty worlds look like winter worlds.
But I am so grateful that all we have is rain and not flash flooding as in Queensland in northern Australia.
Heavenly #18

Blue darkness at dawn
White swirling afternoon mists
A twisted summer

i was worried about you after i heard/ saw all the flooding taking place in Australia. i'm so relieved to see you're doing okay. my heart goes out to your fellow neighbors in Queensland. i hate to see them losing their homes to such devastation. my prayers are with everyone at this time.

In glad the terrible flood isn't affecting you... We have a twisted Winter here up in the north.
I wish you all good and that the flood will go away...
I can not belive that things like this can happen...
