Easter bonfire at our barn, an annual tradition.
Bonfires have an irresistible draw for me. The heat toasting my face, the wood crackling and glowing and the flames dancing, the sparks lighting up the evening sky.

A bit of magic to make us forget this smartphone world for a while.


easter bonfire

Happy Easter to all of you! I hope you are all having a good time with your families! My boyfriend and I are all alone this year, our parents are off holidaying.
We went to the Easter bonfire at the barn yesterday evening. Last year I missed it because I was in Canada and the year before it was rainy and cold so I didn’t go but this year it was nice and the fire burned really well.

It was so hot and windy that you couldn’t actually get very near, pretty toasty.
Doesn’t this look magical?

After the fire came the party…at the barn there’s always a party attached, cowboys take any reason to party 😉 Even after the rodeos when they’ve been riding all day and must be dead on their feet (I know I would be) they’ll still party until 6 in the morning. Unforgotten remains the rodeo party two years ago, when we had a counter the length of the arena and at one point (after quite a few whiskeys) everyone started dancing and stripping on the counters and splashing themselves with whiskey and water…oh I have those pics but I won’t share them here, sorry 😉
Wasn’t quite as wild yesterday though there was lots of dancing…one reason I love the barn parties is the great music. I’m not into most music played at clubs right now but I’ll dance to this any time!

early morning glory

I love early mornings. I’m a morning person and get up really early at the weekend as well. I love that quiet time when the sky turns rosy and the world slowly awakes.
Inspired by Julies post here I picked up my camera this morning and took a look around me. It’s amazing how much you see when you take the trouble to look! I didn’t even get up from the couch, it was all right there through the window!

I love this slightly out-of-focus shot. All other shots I took were really sharp but this one is just magical to me.

My kitty, he loves early mornings too. Both of them sit like that forever just looking at the world outside and waiting for the birds to wake up.
