why bonfire day is a good day

What's more exciting when you're a kid than playing with fire?

Sparks fly. Even the grown ups play. And that's before the red wine comes out.

Then everyone starts looking for more things to we really need this fence?

What's better than fire? Marshmallows, sticky, melted, charcoaled on the fire, eaten quickly, leaving sticky places all over that dirt and charcoal stick to. Before a dinner of beans and rice, also eaten around the fire.


  1. I love, love,love a good bonfire and nothing goes hand in hand with a bonfire than marshmallows on a stick! Sounded like a great night. xx

  2. That top photo is brilliant. It captures all the joy and anticipation and wildness of bonfires.

    I think you are living in a very good place.

    hot damn I love a bonfire!

  4. We built it ages ago and have been waiting for a good day - it was utterly spontaneous and therefore perfect.

    Thanks Kris, I think we are too. I've been having intense love surges for this place, winter is so beautiful here (though it's c-c-c-c-c-cold), with the fog and the wattle and rain and the intense green and the birds and the kangaroos and the smell of the bush. I feel like we're taking root.

  5. ooh yes, we do love a good fire.

    glad to hear you're taking root too... sounds a bit rude or plantlike.. but well intended

  6. Looks great - Marshmallows are one of the best things in life.
