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)

Sunny Countryside

Countryside near the Boneo Maze and Wetlands on the southern end of the peninsula

Low happy white clouds
Singing a song of sunshine
On the smiling earths

Hosted by Sandy Wren Sylvia
