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)

Dusky Autumn Flowers


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Unusual flowers in the lovely Sorrento reserve overlooking Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula
P.S. This flower may be one I have never seen before on the east coast of Australia, but apparently it is called sedum and is quite common in Canada.
In October, it flowers in Finland.

Seems not that long ago that YOU had spring and we in Canada had fall!

The dusky-cloured flowers look like they might be sedum. ;-)

Wonderful sedum. We have similar (but more pink) flowering in October in our cottage garden here in Finland.
