Nat is home again safely now, but she had a three centimetre gash on her forehead and a very nasty bruise on the back of her head. The ambulance people were so impressed with Belle and Bailey that they are going to present them with bravery awards at school on Wednesday. I think they thoroughly deserve them. Nat has trained them both to respond to emergencies, but till the time comes you can never be quite sure how children will react.
This photo will look better if you click to enlarge it - my lovely blue ginger, dichorisander, which flowers prolifically at this time of the year, and is almost totally neglected by me.
We are still getting very strong winds and gusting showers, with cyclone Ului hovering out in the Coral Sea. The Americans predict it will cross the coast just south of Mackay on Saturday night, the Australians have it still hovering in the Coral sea, so who knows what will happen. We don't have to worry about a tree falling over anyway!!
