New Ferns

13 Feb

As my last fern purchase has been growing so well, I added to the collection today.  I have a few gaps in my mini fernery, so lets see how well these new babies grow.


Tonight the weather turned wet.  So after so many colourful sunsets the last week, todays was all about the clouds

Bushfire Season has Started

5 Jan

I was happily pottering around in my garden today, in the middle of potting the gorgeous Kaffir Lime my DS gave me for Christmas.  Only to get a phone call from Hubby who has a paying job but also a very important non-paying job as a volunteer firefighter.  He had received a page for a fire south of us.  Usually this wouldn’t be an alert for us as the prevailing wind is a Westerly, but today it was a Southerly.  Thanks Mother Nature, I love Southerly winds as we are extremely well sheltered from them.

So todays photos are not very exciting, thankfully.  The volunteer brigades did an amazing job and quickly stopped the fire from spreading out of control.

The first photo is the TFS website which we monitor during any incident.  The second is looking over the hill to where the fire is coming from, there is just a touch of colour in the lower left hand side of the cloud.
