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)

a while back I saw a post of these boathouses/sheds...I think Andy posted them. They mesmerized me with their vibrant colors. These are so cool. Great post...very colorful. Genie

Everytime I see these sheds I think what a lovely tradition you all have. :)
Colorful and delightful!

Ralph said...

The mundane houses of storage deserve style - the bold paint and cool designs add a flair to the ordinary. And if a boat is within, we hope for warmer days on the waters. Cool sheds!

I wish people around here would decorate their sheds this nicely
everything here looks bland or like it's about to collapse

well done :)

What bright and cheery boathouses. It's a shame so many people are on the streets when there are such cute little places like that for boats!
