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)

Mysterious Yard Art at Flinders

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ In the front garden of a Flinders home, Westernport Bay, Mornington Peninsula are these unusual features.
They seem to mark the corners of a triangular garden bed.
But why?

Triangular shape
Tall wooden cross-like features
Spiritual tone

When I saw the photo I thought bird houses but that doesn't seem to be the case. They overwhelm the triangluar bed.
I do like your haiku and the 'spiritual tone' thought.
Nice find Gemma.

I also thought birdhouses at first glance!

I admire your skill at Haiku, Gemma!

Are the posts there to scare away some varmints?

interesting that you feel a spiritual tone here.
