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)

Fragile Beach Flowers

Fragile flowers determined to live right in the foreshore sands of Rye Beach, Mornington Peninsula

Palest kiss of pink
Touches of tiny blossoms
Seaside enigma

I'm partial to delicate flowers that seem to have to work so hard to stay alive. These are lovely.
