I was lucky enough to be the last person to get one of her lovely little bouquets.
I was delighted:
Bear with me, here, and you'll see why.
I stood in one spot and I took this photo of the trees and sky facing south.
We were lucky to be far enough away as to not have ever been in any danger, but there were SO many people and animals who had to be evacuated, and it was gratifying to see how all of the individuals, businesses and organizations in the surrounding communities were quick to offer help in numerous ways.
I'm glad that I can tell you that the devastating Butte Fire, which started around thirty miles or so from here, is (as I write this) now about 75% contained.
My photos were taken on the 11th, two days after the fire started. Our skies here are now back to blue.
But my heart goes out to all of those people who lost their homes, and the two who lost their lives.
Fires are really the most horrible thing.
