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)

autumn blues
touched with warm colours
sing sweetly

Autumn blues CAN be bright...you're right there...but I must admit along with your photo...the haiku is perfectly worded/descriptive.

You are getting some lovely reds in your trees, My wild wood is glowing in gold just now.
Haven't been in Cranbourne for more than forty years.It does look a lot neater now.
