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)

like white brushes...

Amazing what flowers can grow along a coastal walkway.
I believe this is a white grevillea coming into bloom near Dromana beach.

like white brushes
combing the warmth of Spring
with soft beauty

The flowers at this time of year can be wonderful - we often go to the Grampians about now, but not this year.
