Last one for tonight (then I'm off to bed!) - today the Country Fire Authority did a control burn of the area behind our house (along the railway tracks). They warned us a little before hand, so we had the chance to take some pictures!
This would have been a worrying sight if it weren't for the CFA being well in control of the fire!
Aside from the burning, the she-oak tree is nearly as tall as the fence now!
At one point the fire seemed to surprise even the CFA - but it was contained rather quickly.
Our little trees in the smoke.
Marty took a squiz. :)
Then it was all over.
It was interesting to see all this activity in our own back yard. It's quite black over there now.. I'm sure it'll become green with weeds again this winter once it rains again.
