New beginnings…

After a Prairie fire the earth is the primary subject of the Prairie, with some remaining Burr Oak trees. The earth is black with ash. Several weeks after a burn the resilience of native Prairie plants becomes evident. Native Prairie plants have deep roots; some over eight feet deep. This characteristic has allowed them to survive the fires. The bare dark earth easily absorbs the spring sun’s rays stimulating quick emergence of native plants. This image shows the regrowth underway of the Prairie, Big Blue Stem Grass. Life continues and will thrive on this Prairie. A new beginning has begun. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
