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)

The low wall features a series of tiles - community art.

Great art, we need more art where we walk, outside...not only museums.
Nice to be back,
happy Sunday!

That's a busy artistic community, and the shadows are busy too, protecting the art from the sun.

Nice bench. It somehow made me think of benches made by Gaudi in Barcelona. Thanks for showing.
