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)

I think she's rather lovely. Great name for a beach, too - visitors would never worry about danger on Safety Beach.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! A very classy shadow indeed! I love it! Marvelous capture and lovely words that I always look forward to! Have a wonderful day weekend, Gemma!

Cool figure, perhaps a masthead - or a mermaid. This was cast with exquisite detailing and artistry. The building is defined a beautiful as the figure was chosen to honor its entrance...

Shadow Shot Sunday

Whispers of legends...I love soon our vacations come to an end, your spring approaches and our...I can't say it, it's that 'W' word...YUCK!!! I'm actually seeing signs of fall here, subtle signs of Nature, woolly caterpillars, leaves dropping from trees, strange weather patterns and Scratchy is chasing a mouse in the house...that's not a good sign...early winter...EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

But I'm sure we'll have lots more hot weather, so I shant complain...too loudly anyway!

I so love when Sunday comes around, I get to play in my yard all day and boy do I need to, the heavy rains have really spiked grass growth...AND WEEDS!!! Where did they all come from, you take your eye off of them for a second and they take over.

I've developed a black eye from my lil' escapade the other day and my brow is really sore to the touch, it must've socked me harder than I thought...guess you'd call it a knowledge knot...ha! I've had my hair caught in the hair brush before too, kinda sets in a bit of panic doesn't it...too funny!

I'm burnin' the midnight oil again tonight on a necklace, I'm on a roll and don't want to lose my Mojo, know what I mean!!!

So take care dear friend and I'll try to stop by more this week, I've missed you!

Lotsa hugs sister!


Hey Harriet said...

That's an interesting find. Not something I'd expect to see attached to a home! Sounds like you've been having some really chilly weather! I don't think I'd cope very well with continuous wind and rain. Icky! Hope things warm up a bit for you this week :)
