Winter is when we get rain here in California, so even the plants that aren’t irrigated start growing green

A rock-lined dirt trail between trees and bushes, leading from the viewpoint off into the distance, turning green with grass and moss.

Winter is when we get rain here in California, so even the plants that aren't irrigated start growing #green – like the grass and moss growing on this #path.

Green Reflection

Green Reflection by Kelson Vibber

I thought this shot of a vernal pool at Madrona Marsh would be a good fit for the “Catchy Colors: Emerald” theme. This is the same marsh I visited a couple of weeks ago, but back in spring, before most of the wetlands had dried out for the summer.

Description on Flickr:

I slowly crept up toward the seagull hoping to get a photo of it perched on that pole, but it calmly turned around and flew off. I thought I’d missed it when I snapped the photo, but it turns out that I’d caught it just unfurling its wings.

And yes, the water really is that green. Ew.
