Our hearts go out to those in Japan after the devastatiing earthquake and Tsunami - makes you wonder whats going on with those tectonic plates!
This wee daisy just managed to keep it's head above the liquefaction in our yard - in some places it was 6 inches deep. And very stinky.
The forces of nature were so strong on 22 February 2011 that not only did they topple buildings, they also smashed up the cemeteries, here you can see several headstones that have come to grief.
One of the telephone providers has made all local and some international calls from phone boxes free. This guy looks to be settling in for a long chat...
And fearless Ernie takes a well deserved break from post-quake duties. He's chillaxin' in the one bit of yard that escaped too much silt and liquefaction.
We're still getting more than enouogh aftershocks, the house shakes when large trucks rumble past, but we had some help from the Victorian police a few days ago and they helped us shovel out debris and cart bricks to a waiting skip to be taken away so the place looks much tidier...well, sort of. Managed to get them to pose with our Police Box...(which has taken on a new life temporarily, might post about that later) in the meantime, keep safe, keep your loved ones in your hearts and send good vibes to Japan. xx
