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)

Amber Jug

An amber glass jug casts lovely yellow shadows in afternoon sunlight
Mellow Yellow Monday #129

An old amber jug
Shadows and light are melting
Patterns of magic

It's amazing what colored glass will do when the sun shines through!


A lover of yellow just may,
When given the floor, have her say
About the bright shade
That butters the glade
Like toast on a hot summer’s day!
