Nature is just so amazing.
A couple of months ago, we made fire-breaks at strategic places around the farm. It is something everybody with a farm has to do (by law!) but very few people bother. It often results in huge losses and then they wonder why! It can also lead to someone’s farm burning down because a neighbor felt it was unnecessary to make the effort.
Anyway, I don’t want to get on a soapbox, I just want to show evidence of the amazing recuperative powers of nature.
We made the fire-breaks as winter started, so throughout winter those pieces of land was mostly black, unfortunately, but soon new green shoots started showing all over. Today as I was enjoying being on the farm, I noticed this where we burned the grass:
And just see how very pretty these little fluffy cat tails are up close:
And this one, where you can still clearly see the black of the fire.
I’m so glad that something we’ve basically destroyed, could come back twice as beautiful to show us humans a thing or two! 🙂
