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)

Mystical Olde Worlde Rose

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Buy art
Olde worlde rose glowing in early morning light in my neighbour's garden, Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers #61
Carry on Tuesday #22 ~ This week our prompt is a quote from Victor Hugo
Life is a flower of which love is the honey

Victorian rose
Mists of an elegant time
Remember legends
Life is a flower
Waiting for pollination
Love is the honey

Did you get a new background? If so, it looks great. Your neighbor's rose is beautiful and what a beautiful color.

Shadow looks somewhat sleepy in that pic a couple posts below. But still as gorgeous as always. Have a great night.
