I am the God of Hellfire

Well, not exactly, but I have just had a stonking great bonfire.  All the hedge clippings which have been stacked up and drying, Gorn I tell you.  Gorn.

Here's before

and here's after.


Gorn, innit.

And I followed that up by sitting in the sun under a clear blue sky, drinking hot coffee and eating chocolate biscuits.  What's not to like?

But that's about all that has been happening on the allotment recently.  We're well & truly in the slow and torpid season.  Come on lad, get a grip; this isn't good enough.  The list of jobs doesn't get any shorter.  Actually it did this morning, by one, with that bonfire!

You can't beat a good bonfire. Unfortunately our cuttings haven't dried enough to burn. But at least we are allowed bonfires again now tough it has to be in an incinerator...but I won't grumble...after all a fire is a fire!!

I wonder how many people recognise the title?

Bet you weren't sitting in the sun in a T shirt

Hi Tanya - you're absolutely right; nothing beats a good bonfire!

Hi Sue - no, it wasn't a t-shirt, although once the bonfire got going it was several layers less than previously!

And Arthur Brown (born in Whitby, now age 70) still seems to be going strong despite his tendency to set fire to his (and other people's) hair.

If the Stones can keep going why not Arthur - didn't know of the Whitby connection.

Not only that, he went to Roundhay Grammar in Leeds before studying philosophy & law at London & Reading. There's clearly more to old Arthur than a can of paraffin and a box of matches!

The things you learn on an allotment blog, eh!
