Autumn Rain Greens the Summer Burn in Uplands Park

You can still smell the scorched landscape and the blackened Garry Oaks, from the August 23rd wild fire in Uplands Park. The resilience of these Garry Oaks, to sprout new green leaves and to send up new shoots, is inspiring. A month of drizzle and rain has turned a once blackened landscape into green, as grass and moss return. Photos below taken were Oct 28, 2012.
