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....This picture is so lovely. What a peaceful, quiet spot to rest and reflect. I certainly wish I was there right now. The kids eat school are being so bad, and I am inundated with ill behaved boys day after day. I will be glad yo see the year over. The way those grasses curve outward is the prettiest I think I have seen. Hope you have a nice weekend. genie
