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)

Hansel and Gretel Plus!

Microfiction Monday #62 ~ where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Susan says:
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

Hansel and Gretel returned home bearing gifts!
But the best gift was Hans and Greta, their lost siblings!
Happy Christmas Mr Woodcutter!!

Looks like we were on the same Fairy Tale page. :)

Perhaps Hans and Greta had been stolen by the wicked witch long ago and their siblings rescued them. I like your Hansel and Gretel take on this week's picture.
