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)

By Children for Children

In a section of the George Pentland Botanic Gardens at Frankston is this sign.
(The sign for the gardens is HERE on my MP Daily post today!)

Peace in a garden
For children of the future
Sense of living hope

Linking to Signs Signs

So lovely to know children are being taught to think of future generations in the planting of trees. You would be horrified if you saw the clearcut logging that is still going on over here - absolute stupidity!

I hope some of the children of 19 come back to visit now

What a wonderful sentiment. And think how proud those budding gardeners must be when they bring their children and grandchildren to see this.
