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)

By driveway shadows
My lips wait for passing words

Now that is a mailbox...half roo and half!

And since your lips are awaiting passing words, would you mind sending me your address??? I found something that I would love to send you...
that should pacify your need...for now.

Thanks friend,

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! That sure is an odd looking mailbox. I think if I had a mailbox like that one it would totally confuse my postie! That's a fun shadow shot Gemma! :)

Great shadow shot Gemma! I'd be a little worried about poking my hand in there to get my letters. This mail box looks like it might even hop away. Cheers, Amanda ;)
