the santa monica mountains are naked in Malibu's burn areas

Yes, many of the burn areas here are turning green again but so far it's due to the return of non-native grasses. Whether the oaks and sage and sycamores, the vervain and penstemon and blue-eyed grass, the cacti and clovers and phlox and wild roses and hundreds of other California natives can recover from a wildfire that burned so hot it literally denuded the mountains, burned them to a degree that has shocked virtually everyone, remains to be seen.
