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)

What a wonderful view of gardens below...I gardens are laced with ice and snow frosting. A seasons will forced upon me yet another year.

I'm glad you are settled and can get on with life, moving is such a life altering event for a sensitive soul, I'm sure you are like me, my home is my sanctuary away from the cold...where my life spins it's journeys into the next scheme and to be removed from the root of it is always unsettling.

Be well, you and your partner and as the holiday approaches, I wish for you peace and joy and long life.

I feel like putting my feet up and having a beer. What a lovely place to relax and enjoy the view. I think I can make out the photographer's shadow standing on the corner of the deck?

Hope you have a Merry Christmas :)
