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)

Gemma -- that's just wonderful!

Kathy said...

Very interesting. Does the thatching serve a purpose or is it purely decorative to hide the concrete?

Wow...that is so unique..lots of work went into making this fence! Great shot!

I don't think I have ever seen a thatched fence before...
It certainly does blend in with the plants!

Faye said...

What an excellent background fence for garden plants--complements so well. I have seen loosely woven wattle fencing before but never this thatched style. Very original.
