    The bush fires down in Australia are really taking their toll.....lots of forests in 3 states are taking a hammering.....

    The slide show on the Grose Valley tells a tale in itself...

    Gum trees usually come back pretty quickly...and regular fires are part of the species' natural regeneration programme etc....but it's still a sad day....

    That's terrible and the home owners that have lost homes too. California was just through some bad wildfires in that state. Hope all is well where you are.

    Cheers, LPN.

    How very sad for our Aussie friends and those in California.
