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)

Lasting Flower

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A flower that seems to linger throough the seasons
Mellow Yellow Monday #115

A common flower
Like a white innocent star
A heart of pure gold
