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)

Touches of White


The old Heronswood homestead in Dromana has touches of white on its facade.

Rambling old beauty
Gentle grey stones kissed with whites
Heronswood magic


Wednesday Whites is hosted by Raya
