New shoots

Not quite three weeks since the huge forest fire near us at Skripero and the green shoots of recovery are already in evidence in the midst of the blackened hillside. The burnt smell has at last disappeared as well. If only the local council, or the land owners concerned, would organize some bulldozers and strimmers the mountain would return to normal much more quickly. As it is, the taller burnt bushes and trees will probably remain as charred landmarks for several years.
