planting trees?

So even though I did manage to get a lot done yesterday it wasn't necessarily the things I had planned on doing. It was  a beautiful day and far too nice to stay inside and clean.
After doing some morning grocery shopping Wade and I got some much needed yard work done.

Wade decided to plant last years Christmas tree in the burn barrel. It's been laying behind the shed and it'g gotten very dried out so he said it was ripe for torching. I told him not to do anything until I got my camera.

It did not take long at all for this to burn

 

Wade's very own burning bush.

Well in less then six months you can get another Christmas tree. That was pretty cool.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Well that was a good place to plant that tree. You should have had some marsh mellows to roast. Take care.

Donna said...

I'd say it was extra crispy!

Alas, "they" won't let me play with fire inside of the city limits. By the way, I really miss you and Duke coming by.

What no marshmallows roasting on an open fire?? I can't believe wade couldn't find something extra to burn after the tree. Seems like a guy thing to do.

Glad there weren't any flaming missiles that left the area!
