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)

Flower Near the Beach

Even near the beach sands, flowers may be found.
The occasional one of these may be found by Dromana beach on the Mornington Peninsula.

Ephemeral white
Like a little star dancing
Wishes on the winds
