Burning Days


You will of course remember the brush pile I had gathered from my blackberry hedge and apple tree.

Well burning day has come at last! I should say burning DAYS because nothing in my life moves as quickly as I would like it too.

While a part of me would have liked to light the entire patch all at once, this vision kept me in the “play it safe zone”. So little by little mom and I chopped up the thorny tangled mess and fed it into our planned and well controlled campfire.

I know, I know it’s not as awesome and I won’t earn any studly awards for being a manly firebug. But at least I didn’t burn down the forest, bother the neighbors with throat choking smoke and I still managed to get it all done!

All that’s left of those wild thorn vines is this patch of blackened grass!

I think it’s time to plant some new roses!

How is your garden growing?

  1. Thank you for sharing.

    Good that you’ve gotten all that taken care of.

    All the best with the rebirth of the grass 🙂


  2. Well, all I have currently is a pot of chives, but they are doing very well, thank you. 🙂 Can’t wait for the warmer weather so that I can really try my hand at gardening!!
