One of several examples of plants showing both fruit and flowers simultaneously. Not sure if that's related to the fire or the late rains.

The growth of this stuff in the burn area is amazing. I'd never seen it on the mountain before, but I've heard there are usually a few plants around. Now there are... lots, many in bud, many more just leafing out. I wonder how many years they'll stick around in these numbers?
