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)

Last Petals of Summer?

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Beautiful crisp, fresh bloom of late summer's days in the mountain garden of Seawinds, Arthur Seat, Mornington Peninsula

Sweet piece of Nature
Like a floating pink lotus
Last pearl of summmer

What a beautiful, delicately-coloured rose. I imagine it has an equally delicate fragrance.
