Last year we had a lot of rain in California where I live. This winter, none that I can recall. The weeds – here, wild mustard – grew to enormous heights because of all the rain. We might get rain tonight. The fact is, these dried weeds are what made the Thomas Fire so fierce – a lot of dead growth left over from a wet winter a year ago.
I was out early this morning, not in a really good mood, but after looking at some of my photos, I realized I had a far better morning than I thought. Funny how the mind is . . .
A revisit of a favorite from April 2012.
