So Northern California may not be known for its colors or seasonal changes; but we actually do have some. Like now as Winter exits and Spring takes hold, there is an abundance of GREEN everywhere. I noticed it first on my walks where the grasses are getting taller than me and so lusciously juicy and tasty. The other day I looked up from my sniffing to notice the foothills behind our neighborhood were suddenly blanketed in green and some splotches of yellow. Not just green, mind you, but various shades of green from a bright grassy green down to an almost blue green. It is exhilarating to look up at the hills. And when I rounded a corner where I had a view of the valley, I could see across to the mountains which are now a vivid forest green dotted with areas of a mossy green. The green will stay awhile, especially if ALL OF THIS RAIN does not go away soon. And then one day, after the sun begins to heat up the valley and mild Spring gives way to warmer Summer, the hills will begin to turn a bright gold.
