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 good to see that some Spring flowers are survivng all the heavy, cold winds and rain!

White gems and shadows
Clustered together for strength
Tiny energy

The flowers have been awaiting Spring all winter, and will not be denied their exuberance as the warmth (mostly) enters the land. No wind is too cold to stem the flower's Spring excitement...

They are so pretty.
I am tired of the 95 degree weather here, but I guess not enough to think about winter coming. :)

It is early Autumn here.
Your flowers are coming out
As ours are going away.
