Thanks, both.  I love the colours in both the flowers and the doll!

And… Fire… but you didn’t take PICTURES?
Well, you don't HAVE to, but by the end of the growing season it's a thoroughly tangled mess of dead stems, and the year's seeds have a tougher time sprouting because they might not fall through all the grass and brush.  So I collect the seeds in the fall, burn it off clean, and then spread the seeds.  And if you burn early enough you don't damage the new growth.  There are about 2 days any spring that the conditions are right -- it's a tricky spot with trees all along one side.  Mom always used to worry that we'd wreck the sprouting lupins!
One year we didn't get it done (Dad used to do it with me) before the end of burning season, and it looked so messy.  I tried raking it out, but I think I gave up before I finished the patch.
Also it's possible that burning helps keep the tick population down.

Yeah, I did other years.  I did with Daesani.  That was why her wig got crisped and she went from brunette to platinum blonde  slash
