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)

Elephant Blues

This blue elephant is one of many colourful elephants in the heart of Melbourne.
They celebrate Melbourne Zoo's 150th anniversary.

This little elephant is so cute! A few years ago I was in Amsterdam and there were brightly painted elephants all over town. They were so cheerful! Thanks for sharing this little guy!
