Burning Time

The boys were out of school Thursday and Friday. Alice was also at home Friday, so Mom decided the boys work on raking up the pine needles and burning them in a big pile. Two big piles, actually. This is the driveway pile, which we lit up on Friday. It burned for quite a while, consuming the Christmas tree from last year (which, yes, was still laying around the side of the house). Today was the turn for the pile from all of the needles in the south half of the yard, outi n the dead end street. I was off elsewhere but Mom tells me that one burned a lot faster. We’ll just have to see next spring if the driveway conflagration killed the tree that overhangs the driveway. At least it didn’t melt the gutters.
