Flames in the Moonlight

It is coming to the end of October and the nip of the forthcoming winter nights is on the air. Cars are misting over, long coats and being worn and dogs are being walked in the fading sunlight of early evening. But for a man who works around the country side another element of October reigns in. The bonfire. While Guy Fawkes is not until the fifth of November, farmers are being to burn away the waste wood for ash and places are putting logs on the fire at night.

You cannot beat the smell of logs burning on an old log fire, it adds character to the air and a sense of nostalgia or a link with generations gone before. Despite our central heating, sealed log burners and portable fans, we are still drawn and thankful for the open fire place
