Weekly photo challenge: Green

Green isn’t a color that occurs in nature too much here in Southern California. I’ve grown up loving the mustard browns of the foothills; green stands out like neon on this backdrop, so I take note of it when I find it. I was overwhelmed by the rolling green hills of the Scottish highlands, and I appreciate the lush green of the Alps as much as I love the scrubby green cacti here at home.
