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 Three

Looks like we're in for the long haul as far as the bush fires in the Blue Mountains go.
We have packed our overnight bags and some irreplaceable belongings, along with essential paperwork into our cars and we wait...
There has been NO activity in our area...very disconcerting, it is too much like the calm before the storm.
The smoke haze has the effect of twilight...all day long, and the light is very harsh  on our eyes.
Just after lunch we drew the curtains and switched off radios, computers, etcetera because we were feeling bombarded by all this information about the fires.  Maybe not good...but I think we are at enough distance to get out should everything suddenly go pear shaped.
So far there are almost 200 homes destroyed just in the Linksview Road Fire (Springwood/Winmalee/Yellow Rock).  Another fire is burning further up the mountain and another in the Lithgow area. If the Linksview Road & Lithgow (State Mine) fires were to join up...I think the work apocalyptic comes to mind.

I've added a link to Gary P Hayes Flikr Page for images of the fire.



  1. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. Big love from your friends in England xx
