Five, six, pick up sticks

We haven't had a fire in the pit out back since Thanksgiving. Now and then, I would pick up limbs dropped by our ancient trees and pile them in the firepit. Lately, as the snow has left and the green has perked up, I've walked the yard more conscientiously to gather up sticks to put in the pit. I find that when you actually go looking for yard waste, there's suddenly a lot more of it you hadn't noticed before.

Anyway, I touched off a little fire out back and burnt up all the duff I could gather. Time is getting on, and I think I need to mow this lawn sometime this week. I found it very soothing to sit out in the early evening light and watch the fire. The older I get, the more I love spring.
