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)

They do have a grapelike look! I love the gnarly twisted trunks that evolve with age.

Norma Ruttan said...

The wisteria does look like juicy grapes, makes my mouth water! I've never been close to wisteria. Is it a fragrant flower?

Kathe W. said...

It looks just like what I saw at the Summer Palace in China a few months ago. It's a beautiful flower that sadly does not last that long.

Heavenly smell for such a short time. One of my favorite flowers.

My post is of my sweet little granddaughter chasing shadows.
