It’s that time of year.
In the spring before the waters rise from rivers to the west and north the marches are burned.
Those of you who live in waterfront areas are probably familiar with marsh and wetland burns.
The next day the birds will swarm to the burned areas. Once the dried grasses are removed there is a bounty of food readily accessible for the migrating birds.
Burns require a permit and are done in sections. Hoses are at the ready with people manning them. Firebreaks are cut and wet down so the fires don’t run wild.
All the flowering trees are blooming. Daffodils, forsythia, jasmine and azaleas have joined the camellias and trees turning the world yellow, like chalk dust.
Hope y’all are having a great weekend!
Y’all come back now!
