This beautiful sunset came the evening of February 28th. It promises that spring will soon be here, but not soon enough.

The burning ban is finally lifted in our state. Since I haven’t burned since early summer, the whole day was spent dragging brush to the pile, burning it a little at a time, and raking in the edges so everything burns. This job is backbreaking work, but there’s something about the fire that I enjoy. It’s amazing how all that brush can be reduced to just a few embers.

The next morning it can be rekindled, but today was too windy to even consider that. There is always more brush for the next time.
