A photo diary of the Victorian bush - specifically the area described as Herb-rich Foothill Forest. We are about 500 metres above sea level. I am not an expert, I'm an interested conservational owner.

After the bushfires - 14 November
Looking across to the hills from near Lancefield - it's easy to see where the fires were now as the tree canopy dies and drops leaves.
Most trees have now lost more than half of their leaves, but there is a fuzz of new bracken in patches here and there.
This area probably has the most bracken right now.
In other places it's just a few plants. In most areas it's still bare. The north side of the property is the only place where grass is growing well, and at the bottom of a couple of gullies. More rain would be good.
Very happy to see several of these on the south side - vanilla lilies!
