Bonfire

and still.

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 By the Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree.

    • I’m back home now so I don’t know. While we were there it fluctuated – mostly similar to England but up to about 23 degrees on occasions (in the sun!), still a chilly wind though.
