The rain stopped, the clouds went away, the plants and trees are incredibly green, and today the sky seemed impossibly blue. Right now that blue sky is beautiful.
Four months from now, after we’ve had nothing but blue sky day after day, after grasses go dormant and turn the hillsides brown, after the leaves of trees fade to dull green, I’ll be longing for the rain to return.
not brown, “golden”. That’s what the name California means — see that “or” in the middle? It means gold. (I’m told it means “land with the golden spine” but no one says exactly what language….)
kim @ 1– OK, “golden.” As in “golden brown,” right? Where “golden” is the modifier of “brown”?
