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)

Waiting Greens

Jasmine buds waiting for Spring

Beauty of raindrops
Breathing new life into buds
Like crystal Spring hope

Linking to:
Green Day
