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)

Still going steady with the pictures and the posts Ms. Adams! :)

It's been a very long time since I've contacted you old jedi master and I do apologise for that, but I have kept writing and writing so all is well in the world.
I just wanted to let you know that about a month ago one of my poems picked up a prize in a local comp and I was wondering if you had an email adress where I could send it to you?
Mum's been reminding me that you might want to see it, hahaha

-Kind Regards,


Quite beautifully photographed! Dramatic, indeed!

I don't recognise this flower. It looks like a rose which has been crossed with a clmeatis which has been crossed with a dandelion! Fascinating.
