Good morning all G'day Pat
Hazel - this is the link that Pat posted earlier for bush fire updates http://www.dfes.wa.gov.au/alerts/Pages/default.aspx . Please try not to get too worried about them - I know the fires are awful but Australians are really very organised about them, and children have been taught just what to do and that they must do it.
There were photos of my cousin and his family all over the English as well as Australian newspapers a couple of years ago when they had go to the jetty and get into the water and wait there for hours when a bushfire destroyed their home. They are all fine, the children coped really well, and they're rebuilding their property and getting on with their lives.
..... One thing I have notice in my trawling back is that there a lot less posters on here now since the New Year than there were beforehand. Familiar names and long term posters. I wonder where they have all gone?
That happens every year Hazel - numbers drop off after Christmas - people are busy and other things take over their lives - even with 'regulars' - until spring arrives and then most reappear along with loads of new people ... it's the way of gardening forums ...not everyone has the urge to natter every day like some of us
Hope we hear from Hosta today ...
