Scenic Sunday - Regeneration

Kinglake National Park
Taken Sunday a fortnight ago. Approximately 98% of the park was burnt by the Black Saturday bushfires this year and it was good to see some greenery - the trees may still be blackened, but at least the regeneration has started.

If you would like more information on the Black Saturday bushfires, click here - this is a blog I have started about that day and will be continually adding to.

A terrible fire - as someone who grew up in a place that also has terrible fires (California) I did read about this one with great sympathy. There are also native plants in California called "fire-followers" -- that only grow and bloom the spring after a big fire. Your photo reminds me of those.

Very nice photo, the burned trees and the new flowers.

I was going to say the same as Jeff. The blackened trees branches really make this photo.

So beautiful! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for the wonderful "tour guide" offer. I would love to get there some day. I have always been so intrigued by your amazing country. Thank you!

The regeneration is a good thing. The green and the blue skies are a beautiful sight.

The bush fires and forest fires can be so devastating! As you say good to see the regeneration starting! It looks very promising.

This is a lovely photo - so nice to see some green against the blackness of the trees.

I'm very fond of Australia, a special place on the Earth. And Melbourne is special in itself, such a blend of different peoples and cultures! It was very sad to hear about the fires that menaced the region recently and I'm glad to see this recovery pic!
God bless you!

Beautiful, and oh so peaceful. You kind of expect to see a little house in this prairie...

I think it is a lovely place for a nap too. Such beautiful scenery.

You asked about the Apple Snitz from our meeting awhile back. Well, I talked to an older lady of our church and she said they made regular apple pies. Well, as I am horrid at pies, I tried cooked apples. It turned to sauce... It tasted good though.

My children tend to pop whoopee cushions, so they don't last long around here. My mom would not have seen the humor in them, either.

About our cat, we have no idea why she drinks toilet water. We are trying to train the children to keep the lid down. We used to have her own water out, but she never drank it, she drank the dog's.

I didn't know if you would come by, so I just commented here. :)

It is a pretty shot, even if the plants aren't fully regenerated. I love the silhouetted tree you captured in the foreground against the sky. Thanks for stopping by at my SS! Enjoy...it's Thanksgiving Holiday here in the States.
