Healing Hills

The BSMAAC agenda is out. Not much on it but two new items: 1. the NOAA weather station; 2. Grants re fire planning and fuel reduction. However, given the concerns about the opening of the State Park, I would venture a bet that this will be the major topic for discussion under “non-agenda” items. The meeting will take place next Friday, the 20th at the Conference Center at the Lodge at 10:00 am.

Wednesday, I took a trip to town and Big Sur Valley to meet with friends. On the way, I marveled at the healing that was taking place — the green, the hills turned golden with a sea of poppies. While there are invasive species taking hold, I did spot this in the burn area just south of Coast Gallery. (The invasive species is the one that looks like wild cucumber.)Healing Hills

  1. As there is no rain in the forecast for the next week or so, I have other photographs that I will be posting in the next few days showing the healing taking place, and another trip north planned for Sunday which will lead to even more. Mother Nature is so amazing, and I love living in her grasp.

  2. Just yesterday I was thinking about the invasiveness of poppies. Now your post. I’m off to research the history of the wise guy who introduced them (like eucalyptus, pampas grass, and the European grasses) to our land. My rainy day activity – thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

  3. are they fire poppy–papver califonica–or california poppy eschscholzia californica, anyone know? Here in SLO Co, we get fire poopy at the top of Cuesta Grade after fires. Really stunning. I bought a couple plants at Sierra Azul Nsy, and they come up every few years from the ashes of my burn pile.
