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)

Verandah Rubies


Some rubies on a little verandah at Bittern on the Mornington Peninsula

Little old couple
Their tiny home of beauty
Niche of secret gems

How pretty!

I can tell you like to stroll through your neighbourhood, camera in hand, alert for "meme fodder"!

DITTY IN RED

Just a pinch of scarlet
To liven up the place;
Just a hint of ruby
Brushed upon your face;
Just a bit of cherry
Dancing round your toes;
Just some sanguine colors—
That’s the way it goes!
