Some months ago not far from where I live, there was a bushfire that went through a large conservation park called Cox’s Scrub. Its now six months since the fire. A friend and I took a leisurely stroll along one of the trails and this is a taste of what we saw.
New elegant grasses dancing in the breeze
?..blue with 5 petals
Flowers blooming………………native primrose
Yaccas flowering ….
A clump of yaccas growing back together : )
For many plants fire is essential for their continued survival. Some plants only grow after a fire.
For sure there is so much to see besides blackened stumps…..
Its still what we call winter down here…that roughly translates as lots of intermittent rain, skies full of clouds , gusty winds and in between beautiful sunny days that we would describe as coolish! In between showers this afternoon I went for a walk across the road from where I live …im lucky enough to have a piece of remnant scrub which never ceases to amaze and bring smiles to my face.
Its limestone country and so there are beautiful ponds scattered around…after rain.
There were clusters of donkey orchids dotted around
Local hakeas and beautiful yellow hibertia.
And there was more!
Biodiversity rules…..so lucky to have this as my backyard.
