I've been visiting this burned-out clearing in the forest semi-regularly this spring. To see how it recovers from last fall's fire but also to see what grows there, now that the logs that made it different from the rest of the forest have been burned down.
So far, there are fine-textured grasses, a few invasive thistles and clumps of bullrushes.
When I was standing there with my camera, something moved in the grasses near me, which I found both startling and soothing. And then I went to find some mushrooms.
