Some Novembers are suitable for burning large piles of dead trees. This year it has been particularly dry and warm. In the foreground of this photograph, a pile of my own dead trees, courtesy a la grass fire in February, can just be made out. The pile on fire is my neighbour’s. It was cold, south wind day; Why not burn? Well within 3 days of this fire being lit the temperature was back in the 30s (°C) and the local fire service (CFA) had to turn up to extinguish it. For Ed’d Light my fire.
