A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block.

Day Seven

It feels surreal...a much used statement in my community now. 


  1. 1.having the qualities of surrealism; bizarre.
    "a surreal mix of fact and fantasy"

 It is the most fitting word to describe how I feel at the moment. 

Now seventy odd kilometres from home I feel like I'm on a movie set...if a flying saucer was to hover over Circular Quay (my view to the left) or a mushroom cloud appear over the Sydney Harbour Bridge (directly in front of me), I would not at all be surprised....shocked yes, but not surprised. 

And - a new word has been added to my vocabulary: mega-fire.

In the words of our state premier Barry O'Farrell; 
"we prepare for the worst, hope for the best".


  1. it is almost impossible for us Brits to imagine this horror, but please know that your friends at the other side of the world are watching and waiting with you xx

  2. Hi Sweetpea,
    Thinking of you.
    Glad you are safe and out of harm's way
