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)

Before the Fall

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
Today's Flowers #83

Fresh sunlit beauty
Like virginal innocence
Unblemished spirit
Waiting sweet petals
Perhaps a bridal bouquet
Before Autumn falls
