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)

What an exquisite flower! It looks so fragile! I love the color! A superb capture, Gemma! And your words are always perfect! Thanks for sharing the beauty!

Beautiful photo of this lovely coloured flower, Gemma. Rather than a grevillea, I think this is more like a Eucalypt (judging from the bud caps and the leaves). It almost looks like a Eucalyptus newbeyi (see: )

Thanks for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!
