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)

Beautiful whatever its name. Thanks for sharing your spring/summer.

I don't know the name.
The flowers are so lovely :)

Gorgeous colour! I don't think I have seen that colour on a geranium before! (If no one is going to argue about nasturtiums, why should I cave under the pressure about pelargoniums?)

This is a very lovely purple-colored flower.

What a beautiful close up shot. What is the difference between the two? They are closely related, I think. In any case, a very beautiful photo of such a lovely flower.
