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)

Two Kinds of Wealth


Between never-ending rain showers, I managed to take this photo of the red corner in the Dromana Hub carpark.
The fascinating subjects include a huge fire hydrant booster and a bit of the local Bendigo bank.
The photo was taken from the safety of the car with the window partially rolled down.
I had barely clicked and the next deluge began.

We could, of course, use some of your deluges here. I hope that you don't float away!

GIVE ME RED RIBBON

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not yellow or purple or green;
But burgundy, chestnut, carmine or rose—
These are the colors with sheen!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not saffron or opal or blue;
But fuchsia, magenta, ruby or blush—
Something of sanguinous hue!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not indigo, salmon or grey;
But scarlet, vermilion, dahlia or pink—
Colors like these make my day!

The brilliance of ruby is to cherish, so we are happy that ordinary things are clad in red. Yes, the bank and water apparatus are thus more stylish as the red makes the ordinary much more special!
