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)

At first, this seems to be just a view through a doorway.
But then the door opens outwards.
And there's an odd, free standing frame.
Actually, there are many frames, like a half complete house, right in the middle of a garden.
Each one offers different perspectives of the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens.
Great for photography!

Rightly so! It's most stimulating to see decor meant for the 'inside' but just as well when placed 'outside' Great observation Gemma!
