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)

Thank you for stopping by the flower pot blog and leaving your comments. I am always fascinated by new growth on the sago palm.

So much our wonderful nature can do to us. I would love to be with that lonely bird standing on a solid rock.

Gemma! A penguin. How exciting --I guess if anybody had asked me in a quiz I would have known they lived in Australia, but somehow seeing your picture feels like new knowledge.

I added our little alligator to your meme. Fun -- thanks for doing this.
