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)

Soft Spring yesterdays
When pale petals dreamed in mauve
Mystic memories

I love 'mauve, misty is just too weird how your world is going to winter and mine to summer, we are just too far away!

I have to commute over an hour to the new store, so my shadows will be late on Tracey's post, but as soon as I get home I join the gang...'cept I was a little late, I cultivated the corn and picked strawberries before I turned on the PC...ahhh, the life of a farmer(wannabe)...

Hugs busy friend!
