There is about an acre patch of grass behind our house where there are so many granite rocks it cannot be mowed. Each spring we burn and each spring I try to start wildflowers in the patch. There are some in there, but it would be nice to have a little path with lots of flowers. This year I have some started on the porch. I am taking a different tactic.
Just as Dan started the fire, a breeze came up. It was totally self contained, but it is always a lesson in how quickly a grass fire will spread.
