Amidst the smoke here tonight, I am glad that I captured these images today and yesterday. I have been pouring the water from washing vegetables over this fern and it has responded with new growth.
Our neighbour also gathers rain water and run off and waters her vegetables with a bucket. She dropped off another bounty on our doorstep this afternoon.
There are bushfires to the north of us and there is smoke in the valley. Tonight we will sleep with our windows closed. The Rural Fire Service men and women are our heroes.
We have also found our first green tomato in the garden!!
