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)

Floral Arch

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Floral art at the entrance of a Dromana home, Mornington Peninsula.
It was only after this shot was taken that I noticed the old couple.
I believe they are brooming down cobwebs!

That was a floral show of vast dimensions. I hope the cobweb- removers don't destroy it.
