Small fire & small flowers
Fire truck on Nagari Road Woy Woy South. This was as close as I got to a decent photo of the fire. But the bastard didn't get out of control so I'm good. I saw a little bit of smoke then five minutes later the first fire truck went howling up there. Didn't see any more smoke after half an hour.
The fire was up on the ridge yesterday afternoon, just over the crest of it. The fieries (firefighters) were in like Flynn. Half a dozen or more firetrucks went howling up Nagari Road to get to it. The Great North Walk (GNW) goes off the end of the rubbish tip road which goes off the end of Nagari Road.
Didn't catch the local TV news. Any locals got details about it?
After gawking at where the smoke had been I went home. These flowers were on the way. In fact you can see them on the left edge of the photo above.
They look like pink gum blossoms. They were on a bush at the Home For The Terminally Bewildered at the corner of Nagari Road and the railway underpass.
Only seen these blossoms on trees before and I got no idea what they're called when they're on bushes. Unless this is a baby tree. My plant recognition skills are abyssmal, as you probably realise by now.
There's a nice storm forecast for this afternoon. I'll enjoy that from the comfort of my balcony. I'm working on my wee shop again today. It's giving me a pounding fucking headache but I got to get the bastard up to scratch before the end of February. 12 months it was in the thinking stage, 12 bloody months. Since I created the shopfront in December I've made maybe 50 things for it.
Rock Walk is another walkies blog. Two people walking Staten Island in New York City. They haven't done much walking yet but have some beautiful photos up.
