Hot and Dry .......




Our state of South Australia is heading into a long hot Summer
and already there are expanses of tinder dry grass

A bushfire waiting to happen!!

That carefully built stone wall allowed to fall into ruin is an indication of interesting history here. This is a fine photo. Too bad you are headed into a "long hot summer" as we are just headed into a cold, dark, icy winter. May the grass fires not occur.

It is scary, all the undergrowth is like a tinder box. Love the photo.

Lovely capture and fraught with the nervous energy of a potential fire! I love the muted tones and beautiful ruined wall.

February will be 30 years since Ash Wednesday when so much of the state went up in flames. Since then, we have had a number of good years where the fuel on the ground has built up again. We can only pray that we are spared another such conflagration.

Hi Dianne,

Oh no, it is so dry already and do hope that the bush fires will not happen.
You must be a lot hotter and drier there, we still have quite unusually cold weather here.

Happy Wednesday
hugs

The Mediterranean beauty of Adelaide is just stunning. The dry heat my favorite of anywhere. Lovely shot! :)

Yes Dianne, you've really captured the dryness in this photo.

Brace yourself!

I sincerely hope the bush fires don't happen.

A beautiful photo which captures the dryness of the foliage. Quite a contrast to here where a lot of the land is underwater and once again many homes have been flooded.

The bush seems to have turned from green to brown in a matter of weeks. A bit scary.

A worrying time of year Dianne, such a lovely image, hopefully it can survive this way. I think what upsets me the most id the fact that so many are man made!

Lets hope for a lot of rain then.

Hopefully people will be careful not to set the fires off. I'm sure most of them must be caused by people. This is a lovely photo, soft colours and nice textures.

Oh, yes, that looks tinder dry. I have never lived in an area with a climate that is vulnerable to brush fires. I don't think I would like it.
