nature fights back

Discussion in 'Nature' started by davect01, Jan 14, 2011.

  1. A bit of background first. A few months ago, (five or six), there was a fire in the ravine behind my house. In exploring around the ravine today I was struck with the fact that nature always comes fighting back.

    These palms were completely bare just a few months back, now there are regrowing.

    Not everything survived though. This unlucky one was cut down. However new palms are growing up in its stead.

    A couple of shots of the inside of the palm that was cut down. I have never seen the inside of a palm tree before.

    Dave, thanks so much for these and for the backstory, as well! I'm sorry I'd missed these earlier...though I had seen the closeup on another thread. It is amazing how these palms were already making their way back. Great title for this thread!
