The fire season has only just started in Australia, our nearest neighbour, and the bush fires have begun. Awful, scary stuff. I feel so sorry for the farmers, the animals, the fire fighters who must get so exhausted, their families who are left alone so much of the time, worrying about their loved one out there working hard in the heat and danger.
Thank goodness we don’t normally have those sorts of fires here in NZ, and certainly not where we live. I think they would terrify me.
Watching the news the other night about the bush fires got my imagination all stirred up, and this is what popped out.
