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)

Such lovely pink flowers ... I'm saddened to learn of the vast destruction caused by the wildfires burning in Australia and I'm praying for all those affected, hoping they'll be put out soon.
Hugs and blessings,
