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)

Swirling Gold Iced With Pink

Glorious rose at Ashcombe Maze, Mornington Peninsula

Swirling gold petals
Kissed by the sun's radiance
Iced with pink magic

Bluberry craft and hobby time

Roses are out? I haven't gone to my rose gardens yet.

It is Guy Fawkes tonight, and I was told by an Aussie friend that you don't do it in Oz.

What a gorgeous rose and your words describe it perfectly. It reminds me of the peace roses in my yard but the colors are richer.
