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)

Those are lovely flowers, and I very much like the sentiment that accompanies your photos. I *know* that your seasons are reversed from where I am in the world but, but when the temperature is 100 degrees here, it's still hard for me to think about your having winter there.

What pretty flowers and how nice that you can enjoy them in winter! My plants will be under lots of snow when winter arrives here!
