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)

What a lovely picture. I was remind this morning that those of you on the other side of the equator or getting ready for Autumn. Kinda caught me off guard to think of that.

Enjoy your day.

Beautiful -- kind of a halo around the sun. Just about worth getting up and early and going to work ;>)
