Enjoy it while you can

A scene from one of our dog walks that will soon be no more. The forestry department are doing 'débroussaillage' here, the removal of all the undergrowth, needed for fire protection. All this will be cut right down to the earth, just as the 'fried egg" plants are flowering.

The cork oaks are of course fire resistant. Apparently the more twisted and deformed they are, the more fires they have survived. This lot look like they've not had a difficult life.

It's a lovely scene but sadly soon to be gone. Glad you now have a memory of it

Beautiful cork oaks, such a lovely tree. Shame about the débroussaillage, but presumably it's necessary...

So sad, you have it captured forever!

You need to collect some seeds and become a rebel.

Nothing like a field of wildflowers. Lovely!!! Why do they not do controlled burns of the undergrowth?

It is so pretty with all the flowers and the trees are so characteristic! Wonderful capture!

This part of the forest is beautiful, the undergrowth will be missing from the view.
