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)

One of these I am sure my dog, Frederik, would love having in our house. He has a little one, called Fido, and he likes putting the face on the toy, or when Rimkogeren and I come home, we get Fido as a love present *LOL*
Have a great weekend!
