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)

Almost Spring Garden

Soft blue skies highlight the late winter growth of the Heronswood gardens, Dromana.
This heritage property is a beautiful place to wander in any season.
