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)

Snowy Tiers

Snowy innocence
Delicate tiers of beauty
Passing sweet moments


P.S. I am now creating a 3rd blog based on fantasy stories!
This represents a long overdue New Year resolution!
Take a peek!

Lovely white roses and perfect Haiku accompaniment. For Today's Flowers I shared red roses at Sacred Ruminations and apricot ones at Happily Retired Gal. In fact, I shared more red roses here for PhotoHunt also.
Hugs and blessings,



A place of beauty in the Western Tiers
