winterize the fig tree

in our front yard we have a fig tree, it suffered greatly last winter, when we had such a long super cold period in february. after clipping off the dead branches it grew happily and produced a lot of figs. though just three fruits were able to ripen. never the less it seems as the tree is healthy and i would so very much like to get it safe and "cozy" through the coming winter. this the reason to get some straw and burlap all wrapped, tuck the branches a bit together and bundle it up. we are getting ready for the cooler time of year. we are lighting candles for afternoon tea and as the bundled up fig tree, i start to bundle up myself and thea when we quickly go for a bike ride, or a walk.
