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)

Profiles of Shadow

Shadow loves to watch the world intently.
But the one she watches the most is my hubby.
She follows him constantly - just like a shadow.

A precious Shadow
Always like a loyal friend
Always close nearby

But when she sleeps outside, she blends so well into the grey of the verandah or the shadows of the garden.
You would hardly know that she is there.
