Brenda's Photo Challenge.
This challenge is being hosted by Karen (thanks Karen) and the title is
'Patriotism' What i love about my country

Theres so much i love about my country i wouldnt know where to start i thought id go with a verse from an Australian classic....

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of drought and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me.

I know we are only meant to have 3 photos but i couldnt help myself *wink* I took the last 2 pics on the South Coast of NSW and the first 3 on the Central West of NSW.
I hope you enjoyed my country and i look forward to popping by everyones blog to see their Patriotism pics!

Lotsa Love and Pink Kisses,
Shann xx
