Burning, Burning


I thought I would show you a picture of the fire we set off in the front of our house the other day. All in preparation for summer's fire season--we were burning off what we can close to the house so that we could have a fighting chance to save our house should a fire come through this year. It's a scary thought, I never had to think so much about fires, drought and lack of rain growing up in Michigan. As dh says though, "Australia is a land of subtle beauty." Hmmm... subtle is right.

We are lucky, in MI. Have you heard about the terrible fires going on in California now? Scary! No problem with that here, it is cold and rainy!

I'm already dreading the bushfire season. Is there anything more that can be burnt after last years fires? horrible. Even though I am in the city, I feel devastated about everything getting burnt. Seems like we both grew up in rainy places. Holland can't get any wetter at the moment.

All the best for the dry season, we're all with you.

Life is so much different here in Australia to the U.S.. I've been living here 10 years (wow - can't believe it's been that long) and moved from NY when I married an Australian. I love it now but it took some adjustments. The one thing I miss are quilts shops. In NY there were lots - here in Perth, not so many.
