The Hills Are Turning Color

I am sure that you may have already noticed by now but the hills around us are no longer green like they have been for quite a while now... Though we are still enjoying these spring showers that water our vegetables at home so well the hills seem to be ignoring the extra innings and throwing in the towel... As you can see from the above picture taken in Castle Rock just a couple of months ago when it was lush and green compared to the other day in Donner Canyon shown below here... There are still patches of some green grass  and a few  tall yellow mustard fields mixed with the thick patches of glowing orange poppies ,
coloring up the now tanning land scape of the foothills but  ready or not here comes the changing of the seasons once again ... The older you get the quicker they come !

The story should be that the hills are not "tanning" The late rains and cool weather are very strange for this time of year. The hills are far greener then usual.
