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)

Folding Tiers of Pale Beauty

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Flowers in a Dromana garden, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers prompt #15

Gentle pastel blooms
A little less than perfect
Not really ideal
And yet radiance
Whispers round the petal folds
Tiers of pale beauty

Lovely-roses and poetry. Yellow roses are so pretty, and you are right, they are a "gift to the mountain and the skies".
