The photo on the right is one of many pieces of the Christmas tree that has been blown off the tree! The flowers usually have so many bees on them I am not game enough to get close enough for a photo!
We went from wind gusts of wind about 20kms/hr to gusts of 80kms/hr in less than 20 minutes! I only said the other week that we don't seem to get the good summer storms that we used to have any more ... maybe I shouldn't think out loud! lol
