Ginnie left a good comment in my previous post about comparing the photos I took in 2005 to this year. While I didn't think to do any comparison photos, our weekend was vastly different because it never would have occurred if the ground was covered with fresh snow.
Our hideway is tucked among lots of pine trees and every spring it's the duty of the homeowner to get rid of the pine needles because of the dangers of fire in the dry summer and fall months. In the rural area where our hideway is, it's lawful to burn your pine needles up until the end of May. Within our little neighborhood, 4 households were burning pine needles. So Jimmy decided to join them.Look at that handsome smile with the fire glowing on his face.
Of course, it's not fun and games when tending to a fire.
He watches over it carefully, making sure not to add too many needles to the fire and stoking it just right.
Why are there often eerie face-like photos in flames? Or do we all just have good imaginations? What stories were we told as kids that we see haunting images like this? Do you see the face howling out in this photo? It only has one eye, which might make it a little more harrowing.
Do you see the full figured image in this one? The haunting tiny head, looking right with a somewhat crooked grin, arms out, dressed in a robe of flames? Does it give you goosebumps?
Let's move on to something more cheerful...
My daffodils at the hideaway are just starting to pop up. Happy little daffodils!
