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)

A Touch of Pink

Soft pink roses are just starting to bloom in my Dromana Hills Spring garden.
Just wish they could entice a little more warm sunlight!

Soft layered petals
A gentle kiss of pale pink
Magic of a rose
