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)

We may all be a bit envious as you change into the warmer seasons. Granted up here we are not at all into cool weather yet, but we do know it will arrive - you can now enjoy what we in the northern hemisphere shall soon be yours...the girl enjoys her walk alongside the bay...

I think the summer's finished in the UK it's rained all day today.

Happy spring!

Christine said...

This beautifully evokes the season, and its promise of more to come. I also am envious, writing this from the USA in flannel pajamas!

I suspect that spring's kiss can be just a wee bit on the cool side, not like the flame you'd expect in summer!

Kisses here and here and here
