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)

Lady and the Tramp

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Now that Autumn is here, it is not easy to find flowers.
But these roses linger on at the end of rows of grape vines at Eldridge Estate Winery, Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula.
I love the blush of pink on some of the white petals.

Last roses linger
Naked grape vines twist and twirl

You have autumn, we have spring.
I have visited your country a little.
To me, walking in the rainforest was someting great.

Roses at the ends of vinyard rows do dress up the landscape and are a great indicator of the health of the soil.
