This is not a black and white photo.
There was a fire next to our village and this is what is left.
Just a few days ago, we were playing here with the kids. Now there are ashes.
Right next to the burnt area, you can see what grows: eucalyptus, heather, gorse, and pine trees. All burn easily.
If you are planning to plant, please, please consider other trees. There is so much that can grow in Portugal.
