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)

Like melting moments
Waiting for some soul to feast
Pink manna on boughs

I love cherry blossoms and the pink doubles are my favorites! Beautiful capture, Gemma! Do you have an annual cherry blossom festival?

Beautiful spring flowers :)

It's strange to think about that you have spring and here it's autumn...
