  1. life at its base level


  2. I heard about the forest fire and saw the picture on the Internet. I’m glad to see that regrowth is starting. 🙂


  3. Good choice. I like this type of photo, plants growing in spite of disastrous fire, drought, etc.


  4. Do you guys get to pick Morel mushrooms after winter also? They usually grow after a fire also. Great idea!

  6. Ahh I love structure that is to the wood when it is burned 🙂


  7. When I was little we lived on the edge of town and there used to be controlled burns in the woods behind our house — I was always amazed at how it could go from a blanket of black to a bright buzzing green in a matter of days!


    • Yes… it is amazing to see the green sprouting to life so soon. The full replenishment of a scorched forest of course will take longer than our lifetime or even our children’s lifetime… but the earth renews itself in a wonderous way.


  8. growth stops?
