a forest of rosemary
Pam over at sidewalk shoes hosts a Garden Tuesday on her blog. Now and again I join in. Pam has a wonderful garden full of character and interesting ornaments. And a frozen birdbath.
I, on the other hand, have what may euphemistically be called a garden which has been all but fried by two weeks of relentless heat and no rain. Tomorrow and Friday temperatures will be around 38-40 degC (over 100F).
Of course, nothing could be worse than those whose homes have been devastated by dreadful bush fires in South Australia and Victoria. I live in New South Wales about 15 miles from the coast.
Remarkably, the men and women who fight these fires are largely volunteers. Many have lost their own homes defending those of others. Fire-fighters from other states volunteer to assist local crews.
We are enormously grateful for all that they do.
