IMG_0080-2_watermarkedThe forest fire is 100% contained with a 50 foot cut swath around the entire 400 hectare (1000 acre) fire site.
Small spot fires continue to burn but aren’t considered a problem
The fire started on July 2nd

  1. Can’t compete with the deer! Aren’t any wandering around my suburb.
    A relief the fire is pretty much sorted.
    My brother, Gerry, lives in Australia quite close to forest and he has experienced a few scary moments as well.
    That fungus is weird …. and I might just have one to give you a run for your money. 🙂

    • We have our regulars here that use the garden as a food bank. Yes, a relief the fire is nearly out. We have rain here today which is wonderful after an unusually hot, dry spell for us.
