This is like an oasis where I live. During the summer months in the valley of N. California almost everything is brown and yellow. You do not see green unless you are on the river or on your way to the mountains. There is a tiny bridge that I go over everyday when I take my children to school and I have often looked over and caught this beautiful oasis of green among all the bland yellow hills full of dry grass. It is very beautiful and definitely out of its environment’s character.
