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)

A comforting color and lusciousness, especially for us in the Northern hemisphere who just see gray lately.

A very pretty elargonium, much loved in the early gardens when people survved on tank water as they are so colourful and will survive droughts.
