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)

A Flower Moment

For just a week, these flowers bloomed in my garden in early January 2012.
A brief flowering, just like our summer!

Transient beauty
Dramatic flecks of colour
Like a bold fanfare
