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)

there's more to a brick...

Little house at Moorabbin, an inner suburb of Melbourne.
The street side brick fence line is an unusual style.
But more unusual is how the fence continues down the driveway and becomes a garden border.
The neighbour's wrought iron fence makes a wonderful contrast.

the humble brick
some humble art

A very sweet little house. We don't get many wooden ones in Adelaide - mostly stone cottages. I like the homeliness of wood.

just fyi, i had to open your blog twice in order to leave a comment. first time i clicked on the comment thing, an 'offer' pop-up came up instead. had to close out and try again before it would bring up a comment box. i've heard this happening on other blog sites, too. dang spammers.

It unwittingly creates a balance with the neighbor's. Quaint local fare! Nicely Gemma!
