The pruner's fires

This was taken this morning and already you can see the air filled with the smoke from the fires of the pruners. They are burning their clipping this both to keep the olive grove tidy and also to keep warm as the morning temperature is around minus 7 °c at the moment.

This is a bit too fresh for me. I don't think I'll start pruning until the end of February.

Whilst I do have some fires I prefer to shred my clipping which rot down over the next 12 months providing me with a great mulch which I use as ground cover/compost in the garden.
