Start of California 'Green to Gold' Season

In the part of California I live in this is the time of year when the typical low altitude green explosion of late winter and early spring comes to an end. I was out hiking this morning and grasses are in the in-between stage now – still quite green on the right slopes with good moisture and/or shade, but going brown fast in the drier areas.

Unfortunately, our rather dry winter also seems to have taken a toll on wildflowers. In one spot where I usually find a hillside covered with white lupine, today I saw only a few scattered flowers.
