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)

Beauty of Blossoms

Last of the Spring blossoms on fruit trees? that have managed to weather our wild season.
These blossoms seemed to barely last at all this year. Too many cold and grey days.

Delicate beauty
Like a child's tiny cupped hands
Like tiny prayers
