It was a freezing day in Kinglake. We started planting in fog & mist, with the temperature around 3 degrees (well, that’s what it felt like) and a strong wind in the afternoon .
We were very happy to have the new shed to shelter in at lunch time. Karen and her mum supplied fabulous pumpkin soup and bread sticks to supplement our BBQ lunch .
This great team of workers created new windbreaks for the house (when it is rebuilt) and shelter for the horses, by planting, staking and guarding 320 plants.
Had an interesting chat with Karen at lunch time about the fires and how the community is recovering.
Thanks David , Adam , Ankit , Gavan , Catherine & Gary . (if only Susan had come!)
I hope you all warmed up in the car on the way home.
