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)

Thank you for visiting my blogs; now that I've found you I have you added to my daily links. I think your posts today is terrific! Lately I've been experimenting with haiku for my posts and will continue to do so as you, too, have done. I'm assuming that this is your primary have quite a few!

A great choice for "A", Gemma, and your poem says it beautifully as well! You could almost do double duty with this post as "D" for didgeridoo, but I know you'll have more treats for us...:)

My friend,
Great pictures. Music with any instrument is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I thought I left a message..I guess it didn't take.

I was saying, it's really an intersting horn?? Wonder if it sound like a huge flute??? The Artist is not bad looking either.

It is always fun to see street artists at work.
Love the sound of the didgeridoo - in small doses ;)

streets should have more artists on them.
it must be difficult to get enough breath to blow that didgeridoo while sitting down like that.
