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)

Dancing Blossom

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Apple blossoms love reaching into the air and spreading their fresh beauty around.
These were in my garden last September in our Australian Springtime.
Blooming Friday prompt ~ In the Air

Romance of blossom
The air is whitened sweetly
Like dancing small wings

When the appletrees present their gift to the world, I stop the time. Watching the flowers, listens to the insects and smell the scent.
