Great show. Better than TV and video games.


man, you even do good pictures of FIRE! :)


My brother used to burn piles like that, too. So many places have fire bans anymore so I'm not sure it's even legal here without permission of the fire department.


Great shots of the fire but the first shot with that amazing shade of green blew me away.


we've been under a burn ban for so long now. i think i burned the last time almost 2 years ago when my family visited and we could run buckets of water to it to keep the ground around it soaked down.

Yes, quite a show! You would have needed very large marshmallows. ;)


If you've had as much rain as we have over the past two days, it was a great time. This reminds me so much of my Dad, who would burn downed branches and other yard waste too big for the compost pile.


Better than TV.


My brother-in-law used to do that - he would build up a huge pile and then we would all join in the fun. Good memories!

And here I thought we were the only ones with a burn pile. LOL Isn't it fun! And so much more entertaining than TV or video games. We burned ours the first weekend of August at our family reunion. Everyone looks forward to that event - mostly because of the huge fire I think. LOL


A good excuse to sit and relax due to having to keep an eye on the fire. Bring on the smores. : )


What? You showed up to a bonfire without marshmallows???? I'm shocked Judy! You're only saving grace is that you took beautiful pictures!!!


That is one thing with the wet summer...haven't had to worry much about having a fire. (All I have been burning is some papers that would have taken too long to shred....but still was glad things were damp.)

Hello & Welcome To My World

  • My name is Judy and I'm the owner of this blog. Thank You for visiting.
    I'm a...Wife...Mom of 11...Grandma to many...Homemaker and Blogger of Finnish descent...living in a log cabin here at Gentle Hearth Farm.
    I'm originally from Northeast Illinois, and my husband & I now live on 20 acres in Southwest Wisconsin up on a ridge in the Ocooch Mountains, 10 miles from the nearest town. My husband and I are empty nesters trying to figure out life after kids.
    I blog, knit, quilt, bake/cook and take pictures of just about anything.
    There is so much that I want to do, but there is just not enough time in the day to do everything, so I have to pick and choose, and I try to live each day in the present, life is so much nicer if you do.
