Earlier in the year, we had a prescribed spring burn to clean up the ranch and get rid of the brush and downed trees from the winter. We had a couple of perfect days and the burn worked great.

This week I went back out to check the burned areas and saw that everything was greening back up nicely and the brush had been killed out. Along with the fresh greenery, I spotted four variety of wildflowers and many birds in the burned areas.

It always amazes me the new life that comes out of the ashes of a burn. Watch for more photos to come from this new series.
