Princess Haiku's Season of Wildflowers

A Season of Wildflowers after a fire, said Princess Haiku.

One of the best kept secrets of seasonally dry habitats in California known as chaparral, is that fire is required to germinate the gorgeous wildflowers that grow there. Seedlings appear in the ashy soil after fires. The fire is an essential and required element of the cycle. Follow this link for more photos and information on this amazing phenomena.

Eventually, said Princes Haiku, we all come to realize that we are wildflowers of the chaparral.
