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)

I LOVE these clothes lines and miss mine after our move many years ago to our current residence with no outdoor lines.

The way light falls through the wash is always great with accompanying shadows. Nice one.

It does look that way, Gemma! wonderful haiku. I wish clotheslines were allowed in our mobile home park, but they're not. There is nothing like the fragrance of things hung and allowed to dry outdoors.

What a thoughtful way to dry clothes!
The shadows on the bright green grass are terrific.
Thank you for hosting.
Have a Happy Day!
Peace :)
