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)

Nice! I'll never see a rain drenched construction site without seeing it as a frog's Eden from now on. :)

I like the way you've undermined your own image - "A Frog's Eden" - with "Just" - it makes it even more powerful - that something so imaginative is just said off-handedly.

Gemma, this wonderfully composed. I like the scene you have painted here. They are very lucky frogs on this construction place. Namaste.

A frog's Eden indeed. We have a small natural pond, and are serenaded by frogs every evening. It is so lovely to hear them!
