THE MEANING OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN whispers the tones of yesterday in a minor key ~ Gemma Wiseman

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)

Never patronise Nature
Cycles recycle

Rattling Red's at Tyabb


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ In the beautiful little Art and Craft Village at Tyabb is a railway carriage.
Old steam railway carriages in Australia were known as "Red Rattlers".
Hence the name of this carriage converted into a delightful little light snack kiosk.
You may enjoy a little time outside on the verandah or experience one of the tiny inside rooms, still with the old travelling atmosphere.

Love is the flower you've got to let grow...


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A flower growing in a pot on my verandah.
Another plant is there, and suddenly as Winter began, this one appeared.
In fact two of them appeared.
They are a little like wild spirits loving the romance of life.

Carry on Tuesday #11 ~ Love is the flower you've got to let grow ~ John Lennon

Love is Mother Earth
Gentle rich soils nurture life
Rain is a blessing

Love is the flower
Inner senses awaken
You've got to let grow
~
Spiritual warmth
Romance of moon and sunlight
You've got to let glow
