You are, no doubt, starting to get the idea that I have a 'thing' about fire.
Crazy thing, you see, is this:
During summer - although the grass is sometimes thick and green and the sky is sometimes cool and cloudy - things can seriously burn down anyway. These bonfire flames [seen last week at a lovely local home] were stretching at least 25 feet into the air, all within a spark's access of many tremendously flammable ditches and fields.
Pulling over to see if someone was in danger, I could actually hear the relaxed and appreciative chatter of people sitting happily while they watched. I could also feel the awful heat of the blaze though my car window... from the road, which was at least 20 feet away.
PLEASE please please be careful about what you set fire to until we have an inch of cold, deadening frost. Big thanks.
