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)

Mauve Music

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Flowers at Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers prompt #11

Petals of mauve light
Swaying softly beneath trees
Gentle Spring music

Those are very similar to ones that come out here in the spring, 'snowdrops', ours are white, I definitly prefer the mauve, beautiful spring photo.

Hope you had a quiet restful weekend...sharon

What a lovely soft colour. The flowers remind me of Cyclamen which is a houseplant here or Shooting Stars which are white and are one of the early spring flowers in my garden ... which will all too soon be under snow!

What a heavenly dream of a Cyclamen! I've never seen them in
mauve before. Mine are pink and white with a lovely scent. Are these beauties scented as well?

I see them sometimes and I stare, too bad I have none around, so thanks for showing them. Have a nice week!

Those cyclamen are growing so wonderfully thick. I have both a spring and autumn version in my garden but they are much more sparse. Love this photo!
