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)

Fertile Waste Land

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ I have featured this unusual letterbox and tortoise made of hub caps in separate, earlier posts.
They are both in the front garden of a Dromana Hills home, Mornington Peninsula.
Now here they are together.

I agree with Michelle in that I love recycled artwork. Good thing you told that the red piece is a mail box for I was puzzling over it. :D
