Back on the mountain

This morning saw eight Hurriers back on the mountain for a walk over Adder’s Ladder, along the jeep track and back down over Kanonkop.  Most of the time we were in the recently burnt areas, where it was good to see the plants growing well after the fire, especially the many Asparagus sp. which have already grown by up to a meter in three weeks!  The fire lilies (Cyrtanthus ventricosus) are already over, but there was still a Mairia coriacea or two present.  These are plants that only appear after fire.
