Green Abounds

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.

Hi Noodles, I like the green grasses too. Things are really growing and blooming around here. Although the one bad thing about all of this, my sinuses are bothering me so much! It's going to be a tough summer.

Hi Noodles, I can't wait to lay in the cool grass while the hot sun warms my back.

Hi Noodles! Im playing comment catch up! I adore the photo of you, you have a look of total bliss on your face, its like a huge squishy smile! Mum says its the cutest thing! Here in Wales (known for its rain) its actually been warm and sunny for a while, there are plants sprouting up all over the place, the grasses are all green and long and lush and perfect to chew on, the lighter nights are perfect to see the new life everywhere on my afternoon walks! I've seen little lambs bouncing in the fields, Cows with calfs, frogs filling the fish ponds with their mating calls all leaping and splashing in the water and the beauty of daffodills and bluebells in full bloom! Love, Licks, Hugs and Tummy rubs from your friend Frank x x x x x x
