We certainly have a lot of fireweed (senecia off the top of my head) after fires.
Here is a link showing some great photos of what happens after a decent burn in the Aussie bush.http://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/resources/mresources/gramps/gramps-fire-pics.htm
Interestingly the ground fire crews have been pulled out of some fires due to the ground crawling with Copperhead and Tiger snakes fleeing the flames. Both are nice snakes, but can and do kill people. The tigers grow to 12 feet on some of our islands to the south, where they have no predators and live off mutton birds. There are so many in the Chapell island Group, that only naturalists visit these islands.
Some Eucys grow quickly, some slowly, all sprout from the trunk after fire, they are prety hard to kill.
Tassie copped it last night, 70mph winds, 23 houses destroyed and dozens of cars. Amazingly there was snow in the south at the same time, 80 miles away.
The fires I have been talking about are now on a 180 mile front. Sydney had fires yersterday, and a mate over in Perth WA, is under threat as I type.
Craigs Hut in the High Country, built for the famous film "Man from Snowy River" has been destroyed as well as some well known ski lodges.
Sadly the annual summer drownings have begun where I live. We have many Migrants who, unfortunately dont know how to swim in the sea. An 8 year old boy drowned the other day, trying to save his 10 year old sister in what we locals would call calm conditions. I pulled three kids out of the local rip last year when the sand bar collapsed, but was lucky enough to skedaddle before the local press and coppers arrived.
Finally, the high temperatures have been downgraded for the next week, so some progress should be made fighting the fires.
