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)

Lantana Beauty

I so love the mix of colour in lantana

soft spray of colour
like a posy of candies
so sweet and tempting

I always love lantana of the few smallish flowers that bloom here and not in Oregon. (I miss violets and similar spring flowers here, but this one makes up partly for it).

I agree, the mix of colors are gorgeous. I think the flower have a little guest. Maybe a butterfly to be. :)

Re my shot. The stuff is from the tree. Covers from the leaves I think.

These precious little lantana blooms remind me of the flower thingies on a hummingbird feeder where the birds such out the sugar water. The colors are beautiful. genie
