I’m always a little ambivalent about Australia Day. While I’m proudly Australian (most of the time), I’m becoming more and more convinced that we need to find a more appropriate date on which to celebrate Australia Day. So I had a hard time coming up with a postcard for today. Then I thought of this sunflower photo that I originally posted on Instagram, where it attracted a huge number of ‘likes’. It’s flourishing in a garden in our beautiful National Capital, where we are currently staying, and it sends a cheerful message in green and gold as we celebrate how blessedly lucky we are to live in this Great Southern Land.
