On Janie's blog today she posted a picture of fireweed growing out the ashes of the Neola fire. Two years ago we were worried that the fire could move our way, so much so that we evacuated our llamas. I loaded scrapbooks and some other important things into our camper just in case we had to leave. Fortunately it came nowhere close to our house, but most unfortunately, a friend of mine lost her dad in the fire. This is a picture of the sun setting through a smoky haze. Sometimes there is beauty even in the midst of tragedy.
