Nothing like a good burn......


Growing up in Texas we didn't have the pleasure of a burn pile. I never knew what I was missing. I love spring clean up and the stacking up of limbs, pine cones, old hay, whatever will burn. There is something very cathartic to sitting in a chair close enough to feel the burn of the fire but not get burned...especially when the nights are cool.........or when the marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers are close.

We live in a rural community and we make a burn pile in our fire pit. It is fun... even the neighbor lean over the fence to watch the fire.

I feel the same way and I noticed lots of burning in the neighborhood over the weekend, 'tis the season.
