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)

Winter Flowers at Flinders

Winter flowers quietly blooming on a misty Winter's day at Flinders

gentle winter blooms
like soft brushes of colour
like a quiet dance
