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)

Spring Blossom


Apricot tree blossom in my Spring garden in the Dromana Hills.
Hopefully there are more hours of sunshine than we have seen for weeks!


  White blossom dancing
Expectation of Springtime
Like white fairy wings
