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)

Tempting swirls of bright sweetness
Some old-fashioned charm

'Lollies' has so much more charm than 'suckers'!
Cute sign.

That's a great sign! I'd go in there.

I would resist going in, and just admire it from outside as I don't eat anything with sugar in it :-) Love the cheerful colors!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful colors and I'd love to take a great-grandkid in there -- reminds me of candy shops when i was a kid.

Good shot!
