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)

Magical Pink Well

Like a pink iris
Like a pink well of magic
Like tender romance

These are beautiful pink flowers reminding me of the gladiolas that come up in my yard each year. I enjoyed your 'favorite' photos (but didn't get around to doing a PH post of my own this weekend). I did do the Tarot Quiz and shared my answers at Happily Retired Gal and I shared SUNSET photos at Sacred Ruminations Sunday evening along with some Christmas Stuph on each blog in between.
Hugs and blessings,



A place of beauty in the Western Tiers
