Burning Basket 2013 "Enjoy"

Another beautiful basket woven with local grasses, alder, nettles, rose hips, fireweed, tansie, and someone brought beautiful poppies to adorn the basket at the last minute. It turned out beautiful again this year. The weather was the weather, rain, wind, rain, wind, and even some sunshine. We had beautiful sunsets each evening. I do enjoy this project each year, a lot of work, but it brings so much satisfaction. Each year it amazes me how it draws people from every walk of life. What a melting pot we are in Homer. The children from the Fireweed Academy take great pride in their contribution to the basket and the Labyrinth. They add so much joy to the project.

It sure turned out pretty. Was there really fireworks going off while it burned, or is that just how the picture looks?
