Yesterday we toured the fire tracks here, to view new growth, rain forest seedlings emerging and others, like the tobacco tree which is prolific. We removed the tobacco seedlings around red cedars emergence.

A lot of follow up ahead when the days are less humid.

Over 500 mls of rain.

One extreme to the other here. Trees fallen across my access, chain saw decided it had enough so hand saws to the rescue.

Fluro fungi glow at night. 

Flooded in for 2 days………..humidity high and the lack of visible insects and butterflies and moths.

In November the cliffs in the back ground were a line of fire.  My gardens to the fore ground. Turmeric, galangal doing well with ginger needing more rain.

Not sure what the parent tree is but its fruit this season was so abundant.

Aftermath here as fires still rage near Canberra and Bega.

We tramped the valley up towards Night Cap National Park yesterday. The gravity water line, which provides outside showers and water for the hens, was no more that a black plastic stain on the rocks it crossed over.

The visible track of the fires from the Night Cap where visible, with the flames reaching a regeneration area we cleared and mulched of lantana 10 years ago. It was well into indigenous recovery but most of the regrowth was consumed.
