More smoke and lots of fires.

Sad to say not much has changed we are still very much in drought and bush fires ravage the outer areas of Sydney. long dry days filling our skies with smoke and dust. It means not much to do , and not much energy to do it so sitting around and chatting it the best way to spend the day, we have a spot in the driveway which catches all the cool breezes and we can watch the people passing by not that many are out and about lately but we had a few days of clear skies, Tom Tom spends most mornings asleep in the spare bed but when the weather is nice he will climb all the trees
 and chase lizards and anything else he can find but tries to catch birds if possible sometimes he does but mainly they get away he has a noisy bell to warn them.












So I followed him the other day and took some pictures he is a energetic little bloke.







But comes down for a chatj
Our driveway you can see across the road but not much further.






The colour is back again and the smoke so thick it shows up as cloud from space or so our news said tonight but no rain expected.




Crazy patterns on the ground






A bit clearer today but a yellow tinge in the light.

Cleaning up the back yard and the fallout from the bush fires

The chain saw is working well the little electric one is working and the shreadder.
 It's been a busy couple of weeks and staying inside a lot more as the air outside is not the best at the moment.

This is the branch very much in the way you have to duck to get under it .

Also a lot of growth has stoped the sun
but this fellow was very much in the way so he had to go

Going


Going


almost gone


We have a gap now for the sun to shine through
We have also had many bush fires up the coast but the smoke has been invading Sydney
Usually you can see the blocks of flats at Auburn and the cranes but all wiped out by the smoke.
This tree out the front has just died  maybe old age it's been here for a long time so it was cut down too

This is my driveway  lots of work to shred it all
But this was the reflections from the skies from the bush fires
It only lasted for a few hours
But I was surprised as we are some distance away from the actual fires.


The sun was a big red ball




As it set behind my house

More smoke and lots of fires.
