Australia Day



This was the view from my garden at 9.45pm this evening.



Each year our local council organises fireworks for the national holiday.



We live just a few blocks from where they are held.



They look - and sound! - like they are going off right over our garden.

  1. How wonderful! We have "Fire in the Sky" every year. Not today mind. It's always on a random non-holiday non-special day later in the year when the weather is warming up from winter slumber. Lucky you...seeing them tonight
