A to Z 2015 Challenge F is for Fuego

January 2015
Controlled burn in Siskiyou County
Clearing land in the winter to
prevent summer wildfires.


  1. That makes sense. And fire is actually good for the ground.

  2. Essential to do every single winter. It's going to be another dry summer. I'm not looking forward to that. It is raining here this morning, but not enough.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Thanks for introducing me to this new word :)

  4. I have friends who just burned almost a hundred acres of their brush to clear it out.

  5. It's a logical thing around here each year in the spring to prepare the ground. It makes sense. Have a great day. See ya.

  6. Ironically, a pretty photo!!

  7. Better a controlled burn, as much as i hate to see the poor plants and trees go through that, than the uncontrolled alternative.

  8. Anything that can be done to prevent forest fires should be done.

  9. Hi.
    I’m popping in via the A to Z Challenge, as one of the assistants.

    I love the sound of words!
    ... and this one has a distinct aural appeal plus it rolls off the lips... beautifully!

  10. We do that here too, it also helps new growths to come in better!


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
