Notre crique très petite. Our very small creek.


Parfois, le mois de juin peut être chaud, parfois l'hiver peut arriver soudainement.
Cette année, nous avons éprouvé les conditions, humides et froid; l'hiver est arrivé tôt.
Ici, dans les collines, les petites criques coulent et l'eau est partout.
Il est très difficile de mettre le feu à n'importe quoi à ce moment.

Sometimes, the month of June can be a little warm, sometimes the Winter can arrive suddenly.
This year, we have experienced the conditions, both wet and cold; winter arrived early.
Here, in the hills, the little streams are running and water is everywhere.
It is very hard to set fire to anything at this moment.

Bonsoir Mr. Benaut,

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I just discovered yours! That is a very peaceful picture! Australia doesn't look so dry, let's pray for more rains until Summer!!

I agree with monsieur le president...peaceful and serene. Is this in your backyard?

M.Benaut said...

Michael,
Cette petite crique est plus loin de la maison que la cour de tennis, que vous avez vue le 23 mars, 2007.
Le feu est tenu tous les ans dans le champ arrière du côté opposé de la maison.
Quand vous arrivez ici, votre partie bienvenue sera tenue sur la pelouse principale si c'est été, ou dans la salle de matin, si c'est hiver.

Monsieur le Président.
Thank you for your nice words. It does look serene, but that is because the drought is over, the rains have arrived with a vengeance and everything is damp and cool. Now the blackberries will rip into action.
Each summer we can have fresh blackberries with vanilla icecream. We just need an icecream bush !!

Kate,
It sure is nice, but the rain has been excessive. However, we sat out of doors for the birthday BBQ last nite AND there was no rain. I gather there was no rain in your nick of the woods last nite and the entertainment was unique !!!

Maraï,
How I wish we had more Queensland weather, Mademoiselle. Vous êtes très chanceux avec votre climat chaud.

Hi MME! Hope things are settling down...HUGS!

So beautiful! The soggy swamp I live next to is not nearly so pretty.

Terroni said...

And how is Madame?
Sleeping any better?

Mme Benaut said...

Sometimes Terroni. Feeling a bit conflicted still though. Haven't been doing much blogging. Just a couple of woes to get through. Thanks for asking!
