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)

The many elements conspire into a fun piece of art! We throw away many things, perhaps we ought to try to integrate the many items in our daily lives into sculptures of mirth and whimsey!

How neat as that. Never saw anything like it.

I'm guessing that it is a late afternoon sun that is creating shadows on your interesting decoration.

Happy shadow seeking this week, Gemma!
