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)

But It's Winter!


This afternoon, I took this photo of blossoms just emerging in my garden.
An incredible sight seeing that our world is rainy and still locked in Winter!

Early white blossoms
Fragile shells of Spring beauty
Like Nature's small scout

I love the first flowers of Spring ... it is so hard to imagine rain/winter when we are in the midst of drought/HOT summer! :-)

Beautiful shot ~~

It's exquisite! Such a delicate white flower with those pretty pink stamens. Enough to brighten anyone's morning, to give us a lovely start to the day, thank you.
