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)

Soft crimson bouquets,
Like ruby parsley bunches
Blessings of Autumn

I love sedum and it is indeed one of those flowers that shouts Autumn. Nice photo, Gemma.

When I first saw the picture I thought of red parsley, and so your haiku made me feel very smart. And now I guess because of Christine I really am b/c I know it's sedum.

Happy Autumn. (I have trouble sometimes remembering what season it is sometimes because of the way we travel -- and because Florida is sort of seasonless. And now throw in that I have great blogging friends on the other side of the is easy to be confused).

Such a pretty plant. Love the shade of orange-red.

Seems like you guys were just going into spring when we were headed into fall...time surely flies.

Hope you have a colorful autumn.
