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)

Pale Yellow Beach Flower


It amazes me what flowers grow right on the edge of the beach where grass meets and mixes with sands.
This one I found at Safety Beach on the Mornington Peninsula.

I know this flower / blossom / plant from several vacation trips to Greece , Spain or Italy. It's called midday flower and I have one of the smaller species in a flower box on my balcony.
Have a great week, Gemma,
