Okay, fires, that’s enough now …

The bushfire haze in Canberra is horrendous at the moment. It’s hot, and there’s smoke in your eyes and your throat even if you stay inside. I live surrounded by mountains, and the smoke is so thick I can’t see them anymore.

Bushfires Everywhere

The Canberra region has a number of out of control bushfires tonight. The air filled with smoke at sunset, and when I looked outside the entire valley was inundated.

Canberra Dust

There should be mountains clearly visible, but after the fires came the dust storm on Friday. It covered huge parts of eastern Australia.

It’s a little hard to not think we’re in the middle of some apocalypse at the moment, with disaster after disaster …

The bushfire smoke (from South Australia?) has reached us in Canberra this evening. You can smell it as well as see it.

Bottlebrush and Friarbirds!

You know summer is on the way when the noisy friarbirds reappear in the garden! They are such funny-looking birds, but their calls are so weird they’re cute. They’re constantly chatting to each other.
