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)

Belated realized I mistook your later post for the Photo Hunt one as it had purple in it too! But the purple photos you've put up for Photo Hunt are really special. So am glad I caught sight of them (too). :)

Lovely -- goes well with your header photo and background too! I think I could have guessed that purple is your color! I love the way you posed that glass. (This is the kind of possession that we've given up to live our traveling lifestyle. I really enjoy the memories that your photo brings!)

You always have the greatest thoughts on a theme, Gemma. And the greatest verses for them. I love glass like this. I wish I had shelves for more!
