Bonfire

Mild
and still.
Bonfire blazes bright.
Branches pruned from olive
trees.

In Spain my daughter has a few acres of mostly olive but also some almond trees. They have been much neglected in recent years and so they have been spending time pruning them ready for spring. We had some wonderful bonfires burning the brash – it does blaze up well, must be the oil!

This Elfje also appears today on Simply Elfje.

    To have enough land to have an orchard of anything…*sigh*

    Hoping the pruning helps with new growth and a bumper crop!
