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 Blooms

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Beautiful soft purple blooms in my Dromana Hills garden, Mornington Peninsula
Flowers on Saturday #21

Softly curling petals
Like a sweet cup of Nature
Like floral romance
Bluberry craft and hobby time
Hosted by Ewa but hosted by Mom of M&M's for now
