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)

Music of White Beauty

I have no idea what these flowers are. They are low growing and seem a little like freesias.

Like mini trumpets
Tiny music of beauty

I needed a Gemma moment, think of you bunches, hope all is well. With spring upon us, my days are crazy busy with lots of hairy dogs and soap orders flying in right n left, but enjoying my windows and doors open makes life good, the smell of the wild air, as long as the city pollution is blowing the other!

Love the shot of Dromano beach, can almost smell it from here, well, I've got a vivid imagination, but you never forget the scent of the lucky girl!!! I simply must get down to Florida to visit me mum and catch a wiff of the wonderful salt air for myself, it's long overdue!!!

Have a great weekend sister...big hugs and a smooch!
