Our Burn Pile

The Sunday before last our burn pile was earmarked for lighting. We have cleared so many trees and growth from the property that I am vague as to how many times we have lit it this year. This time was quite funny because Tony had mentioned that he was going to light it but I ignored him and laid down for a nap, 40 minutes later I couldn’t sleep and went down to the western field only to find one last small branch still smouldering, so funny it burnt in no time!

On Sunday Tony and I and 2 close friends took some time to visit “Lilly ponds” at Burringbar. It is truly a piece of Gods paradise and would urge anyone who has the opportunity to visit the garden not to miss it’s beauty and extraordinary solitude. basically Lilly ponds is 5 naturally occurring ponds on this large private property which have been developed in beautiful and natural gardens including Kangaroo paw walks and mondo grass growing purposely but wildly among stone paths. Parts of this garden are breathtaking and a pure joy. I hope you enjoy these photos! Facebook Twitter Google+...

The last weekend in July saw Queensland Cycling come to Stokers Siding. It was a pretty exciting day and generally the community rallied to create a wonderful atmosphere. I spend most of the day at the Start/Finish line which was at the Stokers Hall working in the kitchen with other volunteers. If you go to the Stokers Hall page on Facebook you can see many photos of us but Tony captured these great shots out the front of the lodge. There were about 300 riders in all if memory serves me and they were spread over quite a field. I have never experienced a cycle race up close and really enjoyed it. The police were in full swing controlling crowds and traffic, it was very much like the tour-d-France, enjoy!!   Facebook Twitter Google+...
