We had a bit old cherry plum tree in the back yard and Mike took to it “pruning” one day and pruned the living daylights out of it, which meant we had a stack of twiggy branches in the back yard for months on end. He decided to clear it once and for all with a bonfire. It was actually a neat chance to capture flame photographs.

After trimming the cherry plum tree to within an inch of its life, we were left with what to do with the twiggy branches which had dried up over the summer months that followed. I had been slowly chopping them and putting them out with the green waste each fortnight. Too slow he decided. Burn them! Mike decided that a bonfire was the only way to go.
