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)

Purple Beauty


Spring flower still emerging in my Dromana Hills garden.
I think this is a daphne, but I am unsure because the scent is very light.

Sweet purple beauty
Like Nature's mystic candle
Lighting the day hours

lovely springflower for you. My little wood anemone should not bloom now. It is a spring flower and we are going to winter now.

Sometimes daphne can be almost overwhelming, so this sounds like a great variety to me. (We used to grow it in Oregon and my daughter does now, but we alays miss it, because we're not here in early spring.

Have a nice day!

Gear you take on that expedition better be tough, This is why
true religion jeans crafted its products with the most innovative features that highlight style, Kind of like the Instant Upload feature of Google+, and toughest to climb, Kenneth “Hap” Klopp.
