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)

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Golden flowers at Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers prompt #12

Posies of gold light
Beaming orbs of welcome hope
Light in the shadows
