or drug them to my burn pile.
I filled the wheelbarrow with the smallest limbs, honeysuckle, and the section of the larger branch.
By the time I had finished, I was quite tired. There are still more limbs that need to be cut; there is the fence on the other side of the yard with all its issues. And this is pruning season for the apple and pear and quite a few ornamentals. How much can just one woman do? I have my physical limits. I don't know if I'm up to all this.
Anyway, I decided to go ahead and burn today the branches I had cut, along with the Christmas tree I had taken down earlier this month.
I made a fire with some intense heat and a lot of white smoke. It felt good to get rid of the cut branches.
I usually sit in the office and while away some time on the computer when I take a break from outdoor chores. Then I get to look out the window and watch the other occupants of my backyard.
