• Short Summary

    Nice shots of blossom and baby animals at springtime in Australia and New Zealand.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'BLOSSOM TIME "-down Under".'

    Australia and New Zealand.

    Two young women wander through a fruit orchard in spring and stop to sniff the blossom covering the trees. Nice shots of the flowers with bees buzzing around. Shot of the orchard with the trees bearing fruit in the summer.

    M/S of a bird sitting on a nest in the branches of a tree. Black swans with both black and white signets swim on a lake. A koala carries her baby on her back (very cute).

    We see a school house all shut up and deserted. Childish chalk writing on the door explains the school is shut for summer holidays and the children have gone swimming. L/S of children swimming in a river - which we are told is forbidden, but they're going to risk it. A policeman on horseback comes along and the naked boys grab their clothes and run off.
