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)

Flower Souls

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Glorious Spring flowers at Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers prompt #16

Each flower is a soul
Starred with a special aura
Lit with special light
