The Hills are Alive....

Thanks to Ray Backes for these pics of our surrounding hills.  Looks like nature is fast restoring our greenery after the fires.

Lupines flourish amid burnt tree skeletons.

Another patch of lupines.

Wild cucumber (manroot) vines over burnt scrub Oak

Laurel-leaf Sumac. Hot burning but quick regrowing.

Burnt Chemise sprouting anew.

The Meadows, Altadena blanketed in green.

Fastest re-growing shrub - Pepper tree.
