The grass turns green in December in Northern California–which means rain and gray skies. I posted a photo of this same field several months ago when it was brown and full of hay bales. The freshly mowed look won’t last for long. One warmish day and you’ll be able to hear the grass growing.
And, as a kind of leitmotiv, a contrasty black and white shot of the palm in front of our house (obviously not the palm I posted a couple of days ago). Palms survive the Nor Cal winters quite nicely as long as we don’t get the rare hard freeze. But even then they survive. They just look ratty for a while.
