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)

I love that fence...

Just charming and old-fashioned. You just know you're going to find a great garden once you open the gate. What do you think is the purpose for the hole underneath the #13?

Rose said...

I sure could live with a feature like this!

It's green paint is soothing and welcoming. I'm trying to decide if that's perhaps a paperbox and a mail slot to the right. :)
Charming find Gemma!
