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)

It's a Green World

Lots of green tones in this corner of the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens

Green palms and ivy
Some bowing eucalypt boughs
Sweeping green parade

Linking to:
Green Day
