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)

Gemma...Your shot today is just what I needed to perk me up. After a horrible week with lots of BAG kids in my “cellblock.” I was so looking for a bright and warm sunny weekend. NOT TO BE! It started raining yesterday and it is still pouring. Rain, Rain, Go away. Come again another day!” The colors is this picture make me smile and the scene brings out the inner child in me which seems to be getting shoved farther and father back with age. You were just what the doctor ordered. Hope you have a lovely day.
