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 see perhaps a ire bowl for displaying fruit. The leaves are a nice styling detail. Yet I see, too, a stylish look at the earth with longitude and latitude clearly shown in the wire design. Neat effects, as our imaginations cn wander a bit in the art of wire forms...

Hello sweet friend, we had a wonderfully warm day today, 70 I believe, another warm one tomorrow..I love Indian summers,last year this time it was snowing...argh!!!

We know it won't last and winter's chill will be keeping us inside, well me anyway, unless I figure out a way to get to Florida, ha! Problem is, I won't want to come back till Spring...but I plan on spending my time painting with my watercolors and getting my game plan fixed for the Spring when I have my open house, much work to do in the winter months, our crafting season.

Been painting trim outside and winterizing, a job that's required every Autumn, plugging all the cold air leaks, changing furnace filter and putting down the rugs, not to mention dragging out all the woolies. I ask myself constantly why I still live in the North...friends and family I guess...and the Autumn, a magical time, it keeps us all here...ask me again in January...ha!

Hope all is good for you down under, here's wishing you were closer, thank God for the internet...what did we ever do without???

Take care sweetie...SMOOCH!!!

Lovely shadows from the wire flowerpot holder. Your photo certainly got my hubby's imagination going!

I like your Haiku to go with the photo. Very creative.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your shadow hunting!

The sun is one of the great tools of Nature, painting with light, painting with shadow...
Beautiful photo, Gemma. Thank you.
