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)

It always strikes me as to the contrast of seasons between your hemisphere and ours. You'd think it'd be 'old hat' for me by now! I can almost smell the lovely fragrance of that rose.

What a beautiful rose! We have a few bravely hanging on in the shelter of the front garden, but they won't last much longer!

The rose has likely slumbered over the winter, merely awaiting the soft rays of the spring sun to wake it up - delicate in shape and shadow, the warm season allowing its gentle beauty to shine through...
