"The Vernal Equinox Bonfire....."

Rob's sister, Laura, and her husband Gary, invited us out for a Vernal Equinox bonfire. They have a beautiful home, set upon a number of acres outside of Verona, WI. We arrived around 5:30 PM. I'm still not quite used to having daylight at that time. :) The weather was predicted to be warmer than it was, so a bonfire was eagerly anticipated.

Don walked down to the bonfire site with Rob, Andy, and Gary, while Laura and I readied the appetizers we'd brought. She had already laid out quite the spread of assorted cheese, sausage, and breads, so we added the broiled sausage/cheese mixture on party rye to the appetizer table when we walked out to the bonfire area.

Here is Gary lighting the bonfire.........

You can certainly tell a "well-laid" fire, eh? ;)

Cheers from the group! (Don, Laura, me, Rob, and Andy....Gary was the photographer)

More of our Vernal Equinox celebration tomorrow........
