Bushfire photos - new growth

Howdy Everybuddy.  Last Sunday, mum and dad and our sissy and brother went to our Uncle's place and for the first time, drove through some parts of the Bushfire area, from January this year.  It made mum feel very sad because she loves our Hills and their unique vegetation.   Once driving through and getting over the shock at the devastation, they were all thrilled to see new growth on some of the trees and on the ground.   Our sissy took these photos with her phone as they were driving. If you look closely, you can see new leaves growing on the trunk of the gum tree.



The above photos were taken around 11.30 am and the temperature was 39C (104F) and the two photos below were around 4.30 pm and we had a change coming through and the temperature dropped from 39C to 25C (77F) and we had a few drops of rain.  

 One more thing mates.  Rory's foot is soooo much better.  Mum is secretly doing a happy dance because she thinks, possibly if all goes well,  in about 3-4 weeks she can stop bandaging Rory's foot.  After nearly a year of bandaging, he might be able to wear his boot with NO BANDAGE under it.  YAAHOOOOOOOOO!  

Take care all and have a wonderful day.  
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  26. Forest fires are nature's way of clearing out underbrush and adding fertilizer to the earth, but they sure are a brutal way of doing it. I was happy to see Sissy's pictures of the new growth on the gum tree. And happy dances from the frozen Northeastern USA for Rory's foot! (We have not seen even 25F in weeks, and 25C is months away!)

  27. It's amazing that there are already signs of regeneration so soon after that fire. Wonderful!

    And the news on Rory is also stupendous!
