FIRE!!! and spring????

We had big excitement last weekend - a small forest fire up on Catherine's knob! We watched the fire for a while, thinking that someone was just burning leaves. I had just said that it was starting to look a little scary, when the sirens started. The Laurel Springs fire department and another one, probably Piney Creek or Sparta, were up on the hill most of the day getting the fire put out. We were really lucky that the wind was blowing very lightly, or it would have gotten out of hand quickly.
On another note, the weather's been so warm, that my plants think it's spring. Imagine - a geranium blooming in November in the mountains...
and my irises are already sprouting up!
