Each year there is a short period of time when the surrounding hills are almost emerald green in color. The green is so intense that it appears unreal and then all the brightness changes to a quieter green and then as the weeks go by the grasses mellow and finally the hills are once again pale yellow gold. This year, due to a lower rainfall the intense green will linger for just a few days that is unless we have another rain shower. Enjoying the green hillsides has made for, "A Painting Day".
