Summer Uniform

With the small wood box removed from the front porch, the snow shovel finally stored away in the garage, the last of ashes dug out of the fireplace, and overnight highs heading for north of 30°C with overnight lows staying above freezing, I have started switching to my "summer uniform" of mostly khaki shirts and slacks instead of black. I do need to get out and trim more brush away from the fence-line to preserve a defensible space along our property line. Also, our brush-pile burning permit expires at the end of May when burn season ends, so we need to find a morning (maybe this coming weekend) to dispose of cut brush; otherwise, the piles will sit until October when brush burning is allowed again.
